    Lange engaged with Keynes in the matter of Keynes's macroeconomics, and over econometrics. Lange's interpretation of the Keynesian macroeconomic model laid the foundation for the neo-classical synthesis. But it was limited in its monetary economics. Lange also intervened in the Keynes-Tinbergen dispute over the scope and significance of econometrics. Lange collaborated in a paper that conceded Keynes's main point that empirical investigation could not determine theory, but insisted that theor...

    Full Text Available Brachman de Lange syndrome or Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS is a genetic disorder which can lead to severe developmental anomalies. It affects both the physical and intellectual development of a child. It is characterized by skeletal, craniofacial deformities, gastrointestinal and cardiac malformations. This syndrome is of rare occurrence and affects between 1/10,000 and 1/60,000 neonates. Diagnosis is based on the characteristic phenotype, in particular, a striking facial appearance, prenatal and postnatal growth retardation, various skeletal abnormalities, hypertrichosis, and developmental delay. Here, we present the case of a 13-year-old patient, with micrognathia, delayed eruption, multiple carious teeth, missing teeth and periodontal problems together, which had never been reported before. The father was also found to have the same missing teeth as the girl child.

  8. Lang's conjectures, conjecture H, and uniformity

    CERN Document Server

    1995-01-01

    The purpose of this note is to wish a happy birthday to Professor Lucia Caporaso.* We prove that Conjecture H of Caporaso et. al. ([CHarM], sec. 6) together with Lang's conjecture implies the uniformity of rational points on varieties of general type, as predicted in [CHarM]; a few applications in arithmetic and geometry are stated. Let X be a variety of general type defined over a number field K. It was conjectured by S. Lang that the set of rational points X(K) is not Zariski dense in X. In the paper [CHarM] of L. Caporaso, J. Harris and B. Mazur it is shown that the above conjecture of Lang implies the existence of a uniform bound on the number of K-rational points of all curves of fixed genus g over K. The paper [CHarM] has immediately created a chasm among arithmetic geometers. This chasm, which often runs right in the middle of the personalities involved, divides between loyal believers of Lang's conjecture, who marvel in this powerful implication, and the disbelievers, who try (so far in vain) to use t...

    Cornelia de Lange syndrome is a rare genetic disease characterized by distinctive facial dysmorphia and dwarfism. Multiple organ system involvement is typical. Various central nervous system (CNS) aberrations have been described in the pathology literature; however, the spectrum of neuroimaging manifestations is less well documented. To present neuroimaging findings from a series of eight patients with Cornelia de Lange syndrome. The CT/MR database at a single academic children's hospital was searched for the terms ''Cornelia'', ''Brachmann'' and ''de Lange.'' The search yielded 18 exams from 16 patients. Two non-CNS and six exams without available images were excluded. Ten exams from eight patients were evaluated by a board-certified neuroradiologist. All patients had skull base dysplasia, most with an unusual coronal basioccipital cleft (7/8). All brain MR exams showed microcephaly, volume loss and gyral simplification (5/5). Six patients had an absent massa intermedia. Four patients had small globe anterior segments; three had optic pathway hypoplasia. Basilar artery fenestration was present in two patients; vertebrobasilar hypoplasia was present in one patient. The inner ear vestibules were dysplastic in two patients. One patient had pachymeningeal thickening. Spinal anomalies included scoliosis, segmentation anomalies, endplate irregularities, basilar invagination, foramen magnum stenosis and tethered spinal cord. Typical imaging manifestations of Cornelia de Lange syndrome include skull base dysplasia with coronal clival cleft, cerebral and brainstem volume loss, and gyral simplification. Membranous labyrinth dysplasia, anterior segment and optic pathway hypoplasia, basilar artery fenestration, absent massa intermedia and spinal anomalies may also be present. (orig.)

    Kamionkowski, Marc

    2011-12-01

    The worlds of physics and astrophysics were stunned to learn on 22 January 2010 that Andrew Lange, the Marvin L. Goldberger Professor of Physics at Caltech, had taken his own life the night before. He had succumbed to the severe depression that he had suffered from for many years, unbeknownst to even his closest colleagues. Lange will perhaps be best remembered as the co-leader of Boomerang, the balloon-borne experiment that provided the first high-angular-resolution map of the cosmic microwave background (CMB). And while this was certainly his most notable achievement, Andrew amassed a record of accomplishment as an instrumentalist, leader, mentor, and communicator that extended much further. Andrew was born in Urbana, Illinois on July 23, 1957, the son of an architect and a librarian, and raised primarily in Connecticut. His family and early friends remember him as a serious and extremely intelligent child and young man. Andrew Lange's lifelong interest in the CMB was nurtured as an undergraduate at Princeton University by David Wilkinson, and he recalled fondly a summer spent working with John Mather at Goddard Space Flight Center. Andrew Lange went to graduate school in physics at Berkeley where he worked in Paul Richards' group. Although his thesis project, the Berkeley-Nagoya rocket experiment, showed an anomalous sub-millimeter excess in the CMB spectrum that was shortly thereafter shown by a later flight of the same rocket and COBE-FIRAS to be incorrect, Lange's talents were recognized by the physics department at Berkeley who appointed him shortly after his PhD (1987) to their faculty. While on the Berkeley faculty, Andrew obtained early detections of the Sunyaev-Zeldovich effect, upper limits to small-angle CMB fluctuations, and important infrared constraints to the interstellar medium. He also led a pioneering instrument operating 300 mK detectors for a small infrared satellite experiment. This early work showed high ambition and daring, and it pioneered

    2010-07-01

    An environmental monitoring survey was carried out at Ormen Lange in Region V on behalf of Norske Shell. The samples were collected at 19 stations by use of a 0.25 m{sub 2} box corer and carried out in connection with the field work in Region VI. The station depths varied between 823 and 925 m. The sediments at Ormen Lange are classified as silt with a high amount of pelite (> 90 %) and TOM (> 9 %). The amount of pelite is higher than that found in the baseline survey in 2004 at all stations. Whether this is a result of changes in sediment composition or a difference in analytical methods used is not known. With the exception of station OL-01 and OL-09, where a small increase has occurred, the amount of TOM has decreased at the stations since 2004. The concentrations of hydrocarbons and metals in the sediments at Template D, can be regarded as the natural background level for these parameters. The average amount of THC in the sediments around Template D is 11.7 +- 1.8 mg/kg in this base line survey. The average level of THC at template A and B was at the same level in the base line survey in 2004, 9.7 +- 0.6 mg/kg. In the present survey the average amount of THC in the sediments at Template A and B has increased to 17.0 +- 3.9 mg/kg. 11 of 14 stations at Template A and B have slightly elevated levels of barium and zinc in the sediments and sediments at three stations are elevated with mercury. In the present survey the mollusks dominates the fauna at Ormen Lange. The number of individuals at the stations (0.4 m{sub 2}) is high (1553 - 2833), while the number of taxa is relatively low (51 - 73), resulting in a very low diversity (H' 2.4 - 3.3). This is due to the over dominance by two mussels (Thyasira minuta and T. equalis) at all stations. However, the dominant species registered are known to be abundant in sediment with high amount of pelite and organic material. Due to the different sampling strategy and area, a direct comparison with the baseline survey is

    Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS) (also called Bushy Syndrome or Amsterdam dwarfism), is a genetic disorder that can lead to several alterations. This disease affects both physical and neuropsychiatric development. The various abnormalities include facial dysmorphia (arched eyebrows, synophrys, depressed nasal bridge, long philtrum, down-turned angles of the mouth), upper-extremity malformations, hirsutism, cardiac defects, and gastrointestinal alterations. The prevalence of this syndrome is approximately one per 15,000. Ultrasound is not the perfect means to diagnose CdLS, however, many abnormalities can be detected prenatally by scrupulous image observation. We report an atypical CdLS case characterized by increased nuchal translucency in the first trimester, normal karyotype, saddle nose, micrognathia with receding jaw, low set ears, facies senilis, arthrogryposis of the hands, absence of the Aranzio ductus venous, dilatation of gallbladder and bowel, a unique umbilical artery, increased volume of amniotic fluid, and intrauterine growth retardation ending with the interruption of pregnancy.

    Cornelia de Lange is a genetic syndrome which affects between 1/10.000 and 1/60.000 neonates, but its genetic bases are still not clear. Its principal clinical characteristics are the delay in growth and development, hirsute, structural anomalies in the limbs and distinctive facial characteristic. Dental problems are frequent and include: ogival palate, micrognathia, dental malalignment, delayed teething, microdontic teeth, periodontal disease and dental erosion produced by gastric reflux. Discussed is the case of a 29 year old patient affected by the syndrome in question, which presents the principal clinical characteristics. The patient's general state of health is acceptable, without cardiac or respiratory alterations. The intraoral exploration shows policaries, periodontal disease, persistence of the temporal teeth and ectopic molars. After completing the necessary pre-operatory preparations, the entire odontological treatment was carried out under general aesthesia, due to the patient's total lack of collaboration. PMID:17909511

    Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS) is a rare genetic disorder characterized by growth retardation, intellectual disability, limb defects, typical facial dysmorphism, and other systemic involvement. Sleep disturbances have been frequently reported in CdLS, but these have not been completely characterized, and prevalence data are conflicting. The aim of this paper is to characterize and determine the prevalence of sleep disorders in CdLS patients by means of a validated questionnaire. From November 2012 to November 2013, we asked 46 consecutive parents/caregivers of CdLS patients aged more than 3 years old to fill out the sleep disturbances scale for children (SDSC). The subjects were also characterized by the presence of epilepsy, intellectual disability (ID), behavioral problems, CdLS severity score, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and genetic test results. An abnormal total sleep score was found in 7 patients (15.2%), 26 (56.5%) showed a borderline total score, and 18 (39.1%) had an abnormal score for at least one SDSC factor. In our study sleep disorders were found to be positively associated to presence of epilepsy, GERD, ID, and behavioral disturbances. No correlation was evident with specific mutations of the different genes, BMI, and severity score. Our results confirm that sleep disorders represent a common problem in CdLS, with higher incidence than in the normal population. In these patients sleep disorders seem to be more prevalent in comorbid settings, representing a clinical indicator for different medical and neuropsychiatric disorders. Better knowledge and characterization of typology of sleep disorders in CdLS patients could permit a more specific therapeutic approach. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. PMID:27133889

    Huang Lang chicken is the native breed of Hunan province in China. The complete mitochondrial (mt) genome sequence plays an important role in the accurate determination of phylogenetic relationships among metazoans. It is the first time that the complete mt genome sequence of the Huang Lang chicken was reported in this work, which was determined through the polymerase chain reaction-based method. The total length of the mitogenome is 16,786 bp, with the base composition of 30.25% for A, 23.71% for T, 32.53% for C and 13.51% for G, in the order C > A > T > G feature occurs in the Huang Lang chicken. It contains the typical structure, including two ribosomal RNA genes, 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA genes and 1 non-coding control region (D-loop region). The complete mt genome sequence of the Huang Lang chicken provided an important data for further study on the genetic mechanism.

  5. Arc Magma Genesis from Melting of Mélange Diapirs

    2015-12-01

    Alkaline basalts occur in many subduction-related volcanic settings, including the Sunda, Izu-Bonin, Honshu, Aeolian, and Aleutian arcs, yet their origin continues to be debated. Recent studies have suggested that buoyant material (mélange) from the slab-wedge interface may rise into the hot corner of the mantle wedge as low-density plumes or diapirs, where it will melt or induce mantle melting due to dehydration. High-pressure mélange rocks represent a mixture of mafic, ultramafic, and sedimentary components, and are often dominated by chlorite. Mélange rocks are also enriched in accessory phases such as monazite, zircon, and rutile, which host a variety of trace elements. We present results from experimental melting of chlorite-rich mélange material at mantle wedge conditions that reproduce many of the compositional features of subduction-related lavas. Piston cylinder experiments were performed at conditions appropriate for mantle wedge diapirs (1030-1280 °C, 1.5-2.5 GPa) using natural mélange rocks from Syros, Greece. Experimental melts derived from omphacite-epidote-phengite bearing chlorite schists range in composition from basaltic trachyandesites to trachydacites to more alkaline melt compositions (50.7-60.73 wt% SiO2, 7.48-12.93 wt% Na2O+K2O). All of the experimental melts are characterized by high alumina contents (16.79-21.36 wt% Al2O3). Minerals coexisting with these melts include clinopyroxene, amphibole (at lower T) or olivine (at higher T), garnet (at higher P), ilmenite and/or rutile, and zircon. Trace element patterns in our experimentally produced melts are similar to those from arc volcanoes worldwide. Experimental melts are enriched in large ion lithophile elements (Cs, Rb, Ba, K, Pb, Sr) and depleted in high field strength elements (Nb, Ta, and Ti). Zirconium and Hf are enriched relative to the rare earth elements (REE), which show flat to heavy REE depleted patterns depending on the presence of residual garnet. Thorium is fractionated

  18. The origin of mélanges: Cautionary tales from Indonesia

    Science.gov (United States)

    Barber, A. J.

    2013-10-01

    The origin of block-in-matrix mélanges has been the subject of intense speculation by structural and tectonic geologists working in accretionary complexes since their first recognition in the early twentieth century. Because of their enigmatic nature, a number of important international meetings and a large number of publications have been devoted to the problem of the origin of mélanges. As mélanges show the effects of the disruption of lithological units to form separate blocks, and also apparently show the effects shearing in the scaly fabric of the matrix, a tectonic origin has often been preferred. Then it was suggested that the disruption to form the blocks in mélanges could also occur in a sedimentary environment due to the collapse of submarine fault scarps to form olistostromes, upon which deformation could be superimposed tectonically. Subsequently it has proposed that some mélanges have originated by overpressured clays rising buoyantly towards the surface, incorporating blocks of the overlying rocks in mud or shale diapirs and mud volcanoes. Two well-known examples of mélanges from the Banda and Sunda arcs are described, to which tectonic and sedimentary origins were confidently ascribed, which proved on subsequent examination to have been formed due to mud diapirism, in a dynamically active environment, as the result of tectonism only indirectly. Evidence from the Australian continental Shelf to the south of Sumba shows that large quantities of diapiric mélange were generated before the diapirs were incorporated in the accretionary complex. Comparable diapirs can be recognised in Timor accreted at an earlier stage. Evidence from both Timor and Nias shows that diapiric mélange can be generated well after the initial accretion process was completed. The problem is: Why, when diapirism is so abundantly found in present convergent margins, is it so rarely reported from older orogenic belts? Many occurrences of mélanges throughout the world to

    2016-06-01

    Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS) is an autosomal dominant (NIPBL, SMC3, and RAD21) or X-linked (SMC1A and HDAC8) disorder, characterized by distinctive craniofacial appearance, growth retardation, intellectual disability, and limb anomalies. In 2005, the Spanish CdLS Reference Center was started and now we have more than 270 cases in our database. In this special issue, we describe some of the unique or atypical patients studied by our group, whose clinical features have contributed to the expansion of the CdLS classical phenotype, helping clinicians to diagnose it. We include the case of a male with unilateral tibial hypoplasia and peroneal agenesis who had a mutation in NIPBL; we also describe one patient with a mutation in NIPBL and somatic mosaicism identified by new generation sequencing techniques; we also include one patient with CdLS and Turner syndrome; and last, an interesting patient with a duplication of the SMC1A gene. Finally, we make a short review of the splicing mutations we have found in NIPBL regarding the new knowledge on the physiological variants of the gene. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. PMID:27164022

  3. Mechanical effect of mélange-induced buttressing on embayment-terminating glacier dynamics

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    D. Seneca Lindsey

    2012-09-01

    Full Text Available Embayment terminating glaciers interact dynamically with seasonal sea ice and icebergs, a mixture we refer to as mélange. For certain glaciers, mélange prevents calved bergs from rotating away from the front, thus allowing the ice front to advance into the embayment. Here we demonstrate that mélange can, if rigid enough, provide sufficient buttressing to reduce the calving rate, while leaving the ice-front velocity largely unaffected. The net result is additional ice-front advance.

    Observations indicate a seasonal advance/retreat cycle has occurred at Jakobshavn Isbræ since the 1950s. We model an idealized Jakobshavn Isbræ-like scenario and find that mélange may be responsible for a seasonal ice-front advance of up to 0.6 km. These results come from a model that incorporates mélange into the interior of the domain, includes relevant stresses, and models drag via a kinematic boundary condition. A weakening or loss of mélange due to increasing temperatures would lead to further mass loss from glaciers such as Jakobshavn Isbræ.

  5. Repensar la criminología con Luhmann, Lang, Foucault

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Luciano Nuzzo

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available El tema que el artículo afronta es: ¿cuál es el objeto de la criminología? Para responder a esta pregunta es necesario analizar el estatuto epistemológico delsaber criminológico. Pero si se busca una respuesta a este problema dentro del debate criminológico, se quedará desilusionado. La criminología parece no darse plenamente cuenta de la necesidad de un método capaz de hacer posible una comprensión de su propio objeto. El autor propone seguir tres caminosque, desde perspectivas diferentes, afrontan el problema fundamental para cada observación social, es decir, el hecho de que cada observación de la sociedad es parte de lo que se quiere describir. El primer recorrido propuesto es la teoría de los sistemas sociales de Niklas Luhmann. Mediante la distinción entre observación de primer y de segundo orden es posible comprender el problema del objeto sin caer en la paradoja de la autoimplicación. El segundo recorrido propuesto es una obra de arte y precisamente el film de Frit Lang M., El monstruo de Dusseldorf. El arte, en efecto, permite ver lo que no podemos ver dentro de los confines de una observación científica. El arte permite rodear el punto ciego de la propia observación. Por último, el tercer recorrido propuesto al lector es la genealogía del poder descrita por Michel Foucault en el curso al College de France de 1974-1975, dedicado a los Anormales Estos tres recorridos permiten comprender desde perspectivas diferentes que la criminología no podrá producir conocimientos suficientemente adecuados a su objeto si no comprende cómo ella misma está siempre implicada en la construcción del objeto que observa.

  6. Barrett's esophagus in a child with de Lange syndrome: report of one case.

    Pei, R S; Lin, C C; Mak, S C; Chi, C S; Chou, G

    2000-01-01

    Barrett's esophagus, a premalignant condition, is recognized as stratified squamous epithelium of the esophagus substituted by columnar epithelium. The risk factors for development of Barrett's esophagus include frequent gastroesophageal reflux, esophageal stricture, male sex and mental retardation, but there is no report of Barrett's esophagus in children with de Lange syndrome. We report a 7-year-old boy who was diagnosed as de Lange syndrome shortly after birth and had gastroesophageal reflux since early infancy. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopic examination revealed a cauliflower-like mass and a pink-red velvety mass over the lower third of the esophagus. Biopsy showed goblet cells metaplasia, confirming Barrett's esophagus. We suggest surveillance of Barrett's esophagus could be done ahead of schedule in children with long-standing gastroesophageal reflux or with de Lange syndrome.

  14. Friedrich Albert Lange on neo-Kantianism, socialist Darwinism, and a psychology without a soul.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Teo, Thomas

    2002-01-01

    Friedrich Albert Lange was a German philosopher, political theorist, educator, and psychologist who outlined an objective psychology in the 1860s. This article shows how some of the most important worldviews of the nineteenth century (Kantianism, Marxism, and Darwinism) were combined creatively in his thought system. He was crucial in the development of neo-Kantianism and incorporated psycho-physiological research on sensation and perception in order to defend Kant's epistemological idealism. Based on a critique of phrenology and philosophical psychology of his time, Lange developed a program of a psychology without a soul. He suggested that only those phenomena that can be observed and controlled should be studied, that psychology should focus on actions and speech, and that for each psychological event the corresponding physical or physiological processes should be identified. Lange opposed introspection and subjective accounts and promoted experiments and statistics. He also promoted Darwinism for psychology while developing a socialist progressive-democratic reading of Darwin in his social theory. The implications of socialist Darwinism on Lange's conceptualization of race are discussed and his prominence in nineteenth century philosophy and psychology is summarized.

    Full Text Available The long-standing friendship between Andrew Lang (1844-19121 and Henry RiderHaggard (1856-19252 is surely one of the most intriguing literary relationships ofthe Victorian era.3 Lang was a pre-eminent literary critic and his support forHaggard’s earliest popular romances, such as King Solomon’s mines (1885 andShe (1887, helped to establish them as leading models of the new genre ofimperial adventure fiction.4 Lang and Haggard co-authored The world’s desire(18905 and the ideas of Lang, who was also a brilliant Classics scholar, can beseen in many of Haggard’s works. There are some significant similarities betweenthe two men: both were approximate contemporaries who lived through the mostaggressive phase of British imperialism, both were highly successfully writers whoearned their living by their pens, both wrote prolifically and fluently on a wide range of subjects,6 both were largely self-educated, both were interested in thesupernatural, both had had unhappy experiences in love at first but later maintainedlong-lasting marriages, and both were men with powerful faculties of imagination.There are, of course, significant differences also: Lang was a gifted intellectualwho had won a fellowship at Oxford, a Homeric scholar, a poet with a gift forirony and humour, and one of the earliest exponents of the new science ofanthropological mythology; Haggard was less well educated and more seriousminded,he preferred action to ideas, was personally involved in the extension ofBritish rule in Southern Africa,7 and had a close experience of African tribal life.This article sets out to investigate the relationship between these two men, and toassess the extent to which Lang’s classical and anthropological thinking shaped thenarratives of Haggard, especially those set in his imperialistic fantasy of theAfrican continent.

    2014-07-01

    The Peramora Mélange is part of an accretionary complex between the South Portuguese Zone (a fragment of Laurussia) and the Ossa Morena Zone (para-autochthonous Gondwana) and is an expression of the Pangean suture zone in southwestern Iberia. The suture zone is characterized by fault-bounded units of metasedimentary rocks, mélanges, and mafic complexes. Detailed geologic mapping of the Peramora Mélange reveals a complex pattern of imbricated schists and mafic block-in-matrix mélanges. Geochemical signatures of the Pulo do Lobo schist (PDL) are consistent with derivation from both mafic and continental sources. The mafic block-in-matrix mélange displays normal mid-ocean ridge basalt (NMORB) geochemical signature, juvenile Sm-Nd isotopic compositions, and a range of zircon ages similar to those observed in the PDL, suggesting a sedimentary component. Taken together, these data suggest a complex tectonic history characterized by erosion of a NMORB source, mélange formation, and imbrication during underplating occurring during the final stages of continent-continent collision.

    In 1851 Williamson serendipitously discovered a new and efficient way to produce ethers using ethyl iodide and potassium salts. Based on this new synthetic approach, the Frenchman Philippe de Clermont and the Muscovite Wladimir Moschnin, both élèves of Adolphe Wurtz in his Paris School of Chemistry, achieved the synthesis of the first ester of pyrophosphoric acid (TEPP). de Clermont "tasted" the new compound and although TEPP is a potent cholinesterase inhibitor he failed to recognize its toxicity. Almost a century later, in 1932, Willy Lange (1900-1976) and his graduate student Gerda v. Krueger (1907-after 1970) described the toxicity of organophosphonates. While the classic paper of the two "Uber Ester der Monofluorphosphorsäure." is cited by almost everybody working in the field, little is known about Lange and almost nothing about v. Krueger. This brief communication attempts to shed some light on the life of both. PMID:21105582

  3. MyProLang - My Programming Language: A Template-Driven Automatic Natural Programming Language

    CERN Document Server

    Bassil, Youssef

    2012-01-01

    Modern computer programming languages are governed by complex syntactic rules. They are unlike natural languages; they require extensive manual work and a significant amount of learning and practicing for an individual to become skilled at and to write correct programs. Computer programming is a difficult, complicated, unfamiliar, non-automated, and a challenging discipline for everyone; especially, for students, new programmers and end-users. This paper proposes a new programming language and an environment for writing computer applications based on source-code generation. It is mainly a template-driven automatic natural imperative programming language called MyProLang. It harnesses GUI templates to generate proprietary natural language source-code, instead of having computer programmers write the code manually. MyProLang is a blend of five elements. A proprietary natural programming language with unsophisticated grammatical rules and expressive syntax; automation templates that automate the generation of in...

  4. Effects of herbicides on Behr's metalmark butterfly, a surrogate species for the endangered butterfly, Lange's metalmark.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Stark, John D; Chen, Xue Dong; Johnson, Catherine S

    2012-05-01

    Lange's metalmark butterfly, Apodemia mormo langei Comstock, is in danger of extinction due to loss of habitat caused by invasive exotic plants which are eliminating its food, naked stem buckwheat. Herbicides are being used to remove invasive weeds from the dunes; however, little is known about the potential effects of herbicides on butterflies. To address this concern we evaluated potential toxic effects of three herbicides on Behr's metalmark, a close relative of Lange's metalmark. First instars were exposed to recommended field rates of triclopyr, sethoxydim, and imazapyr. Life history parameters were recorded after exposure. These herbicides reduced the number of adults that emerged from pupation (24-36%). Each herbicide has a different mode of action. Therefore, we speculate that effects are due to inert ingredients or indirect effects on food plant quality. If these herbicides act the same in A. mormo langei, they may contribute to the decline of this species. PMID:22310058

    Background: Self-injurious behaviour is commonly seen in Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS). However, there has been limited research into the aetiology of self-injury in CdLS and whether environmental factors influence the behaviour. Methods: We observed the self-injury of 27 individuals with CdLS and 17 participants who did not have CdLS matched…

  7. Org.Lcsim: Event Reconstruction in Java

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Maximizing the physics performance of detectors being designed for the International Linear Collider, while remaining sensitive to cost constraints, requires a powerful, efficient, and flexible simulation, reconstruction and analysis environment to study the capabilities of a large number of different detector designs. The preparation of Letters Of Intent for the International Linear Collider involved the detailed study of dozens of detector options, layouts and readout technologies; the final physics benchmarking studies required the reconstruction and analysis of hundreds of millions of events. We describe the Java-based software toolkit (org.lcsim) which was used for full event reconstruction and analysis. The components are fully modular and are available for tasks from digitization of tracking detector signals through to cluster finding, pattern recognition, track-fitting, calorimeter clustering, individual particle reconstruction, jet-finding, and analysis. The detector is defined by the same xml input files used for the detector response simulation, ensuring the simulation and reconstruction geometries are always commensurate by construction. We discuss the architecture as well as the performance.

    Full Text Available Desde hace algunos años, un limitado grupo de empresas citrícolas trabaja en la producción de cítricos orgánicos (Ceiba, Morón, Arimao en las cuales se necesita mecanizar el proceso de distribución de grandes volúmenes de materia orgánica. Teniendo en cuenta las altas normas de entrega (12 t/ha, que implica la entrega de 3 t/hilera y 600 t/año, se hace necesario el estudio de esparcidoras de gran capacidad, resistencia y durabilidad, además de satisfacer las exigencias de distribución en cítricos, sobre todo porque se requiere distribuir materia orgánica debajo de la copa de los árboles en una franja continua de ancho no menor de 0,5m (38,46 kg/planta. La efectividad del cumplimiento de estas normas se contrapone con los efectos de compactación del suelo, sobre todo cuando la calle de las plantaciones está plantada de cultivos en rotación como leguminosas y otros. El trabajo tiene el objetivo de analizar las ventajas e inconvenientes que presentan las principales máquinas distribuidoras existentes en el mercado, de acuerdo con las nuevas condiciones que exigen los cítricos orgánicos. Por tanto, los parámetros: capacidad de entrega, volumen de tolva, compactación del suelo, ancho de distribución, efectividad de mecanismos de distribución, entrega lateral a baja altura y por encima de las leguminosas, constituyen los principales elementos de selección. En el análisis se considera el factor económico como uno de los elementos decisivos en la selección de las mejores opciones. Del análisis se concluye que debe disponerse de un dispositivo adaptado a la salida de una máquina distribuidora con mecanismo variador de la altura de distribución, para lograr diferentes condiciones de lanzamiento

    We present a case of a young adult with both Cornelia de Lange syndrome and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. The patient showed non-verbal autism, intellectual disability and severe/intractable self-harming behaviours that led to a life-threatening complication (ie, septicaemia). A significant reduction in the self-harming behaviours was attained in a multidisciplinary neurobehavioural inpatient unit after addressing all causes of somatic pains, managing pain using level II and III analgesics, stabilising the patient's mood, limiting the iatrogenic effects of multiple prescriptions and offering a specific psychoeducational approach.

    Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS) is a rare, multiple congenital defect often called as Amsterdam dwarfism. The physical phenotype of CdLS includes low birth body weight, short stature and facio-cranial dysmorphia. The diagnosis of the syndrome is based on clinical grounds as there is no biochemical or chromosomal markers for CDLS that makes its diagnosis more complicated. The purpose of this paper is to present a clinical report of a boy emphasizing the importance of multidisciplinary approach for the diagnosis and treatment of this syndrome. PMID:25859533

    Full Text Available Les mélanges de polymères thermoplastiques font actuellement l'objet d'un effort considérable de recherche et de développement. Cette synthèse bibliographique concerne principalement les mélanges mécaniques de polymères incompatibles à l'état fondu. Ceux-ci ont une morphologie hétérogène qui dépend des conditions de mise en oeuvre autant que de la nature des constituants. De plus, pour ce type de matériaux, la nature de l'interface joue un rôle déterminant sur la formation de la morphologie hétérogène et donc sur les propriétés du produit final. D'autre part un problème important réside dans la stabilité des mélanges réalisés. L'ajout d'une faible quantité d'agent tensioactif de type copolymère séquencé, ou greffé, ou la modification chimique des constituants (greffage ou réticulation par exemple permet, dans certains cas d'améliorer très sensiblement les propriétés des mélanges en augmentant l'adhérence entre les phases immiscibles. L'ensemble de ces considérations permettent la réalisation industrielle de nouveaux matériaux polymères aux caractéristiques spécifiques. Thermoplastic polymer mixtures are currently the subject of considerable research and development efforts. This bibliographic synthesis deals mainly with melt blending process of incompatible polymers. These blends have a heterogeneous morphology that depends on the processing conditions as much as on the chemical structure of the componants. Likewise, for these materials the nature of the interface plays a decisive role on the formation of the heterogeneous morphology and hence on the properties on the end product. Furthermore, an important problem is to stabilize the morphology of the blends. Adding a small amount of surfactant of the sequenced of grafted copolymer type or, else, the chemical reaction of the constituents (e. g. grafting or branching during processing are ways in some cases of considerably improving the properties of

    2005-07-01

    The Ormen Lange gas field is located within a prehistoric slide area with varying water depths from 250 to 1100 m. Due to the slide area, the seabed is very uneven including steep slopes and seabed obstacles up to 50 meters tall. The major technical challenges with respect to pipeline design in this area are: extreme seabed topography combined with inhomogeneous soil conditions; uncertainties related to current velocities and distribution; high number of spans including some very long spans; deep waters and therefore difficult and costly seabed preparation/span intervention; flowlines with large potential to buckle laterally in combination with free spans. In order to minimise span intervention costs, a major testing campaign and research programme has been conducted in the Ormen Lange project to come up with a design procedure in compliance with the DNV-RP-F105 (DNV, 2002) design philosophy. The improvements in terms of reduced seabed intervention and rock dumping costs are in the order of several 100 MNOKs. The lessons learned and the improved knowledge will also be a great value for other project dealing with similar free span problems. (author)

    Middle Eocene to middle Miocene mélange and broken formations are exposed in the coastal outcrops along the west side of the Olympic Peninsula, Washington. A petroleum geochemical assessment of these geologic units has included the investigation of biomarker compounds. A comparison was made of biomarkers in an oil sample from a middle Miocene reservoir penetrated in the Medina No. 1 well with biomarkers in extracts from two samples of middle Eocene Ozette mélange (one sample having a strong petroliferous odor, and the other sample lacking this characteristic odor). Distribution patterns of n-alkanes, tricyclic terpanes, pentacyclic triterpanes, steranes, and diasteranes are remarkably similar in the oil and rock extracts. Biomarker maturity parameters indicate higher maturity in the oil relative to the extracts. The presence of 17α(H)-23,28-bisnorlupane, 18α(H)- and 18β(H)-oleanane, and de-A-lupane and an odd-carbon-number dominance of the n-alkanes in the oil and extracts seems to tie the hydrocarbons to a common source that has a significant terrigenous component.

Discute a visão do cineasta, especialmente a existência humana, tendo como eixo condutor uma reflexão sobre envelhecimento e morte, questões intrinsecamente ligadas ao tema do sentido da vida, remetendo às discussões sobre a imortalidade da alma e a existência de Deus. Neste filme Lang apresenta a história das três luzes: tentativas de esperança, conflitos sobre o amor, a conquista da vida e a aceitação da morte. A investigação realizada mostra que a arte que se faz através do cinema contribui na compreensão do caráter finito da vida, uma questão complexa na velhice, a constante busca de respostas para as inquietudes do que seja o morrer, o que representa para o velho ser definitivamente um ser finito.  

  18. Effects of herbicides on Behr's metalmark butterfly, a surrogate species for the endangered butterfly, Lange's metalmark

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Lange's metalmark butterfly, Apodemia mormo langei Comstock, is in danger of extinction due to loss of habitat caused by invasive exotic plants which are eliminating its food, naked stem buckwheat. Herbicides are being used to remove invasive weeds from the dunes; however, little is known about the potential effects of herbicides on butterflies. To address this concern we evaluated potential toxic effects of three herbicides on Behr's metalmark, a close relative of Lange's metalmark. First instars were exposed to recommended field rates of triclopyr, sethoxydim, and imazapyr. Life history parameters were recorded after exposure. These herbicides reduced the number of adults that emerged from pupation (24–36%). Each herbicide has a different mode of action. Therefore, we speculate that effects are due to inert ingredients or indirect effects on food plant quality. If these herbicides act the same in A. mormo langei, they may contribute to the decline of this species. - Highlights: ► We evaluated the effects of three herbicides on the butterfly, Behr's metalmark. ► These herbicides are used to control invasive weeds in butterfly habitat. ► The herbicides reduced adult butterfly emergence. - Herbicides are used to remove invasive weeds from butterfly habitat. Certain herbicides may be having a negative effect on butterflies.

    The wake effects behind wind turbines were investigated by using data from a Met Mast tower and the SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system for a wind turbine. The results of the wake investigations and predicted values for the velocity deficit based on the eddy viscosity model were compared with the turbulence intensity from the Lange model. As a result, the velocity deficit and turbulence intensity of the wake increased as the free stream wind speed decreased. In addition, the magnitude of the velocity deficit for the center of the wake using the eddy viscosity model was overestimated while the turbulence intensity from the Lange model showed similarities with measured values.

    Over the past several years, Helioviewer.org has enabled thousands of users from across the globe to explore the inner heliosphere, providing access to over ten million images from the SOHO, SDO, and STEREO missions. Users can explore solar image archives, create movies on the fly, and interact with other solar and heliospheric services like the SDO cut-out service and the Virtual Solar Observatory (VSO). In addition to providing a powerful platform for browsing heterogeneous sets of solar data, Helioviewer.org also seeks to be as flexible and extensible as possible, providing access to much its functionality via a simple Application Programming Interface (API). The API can be used to create images and movies from data available on Helioviewer.org, or to embed a simplified version of Helioviewer.org into another website. Recently the Helioviewer.org API was used for two such applications developed by outside interests: an SDO data browser, and a Python library for solar physics data analysis (SunPy). These applications are discussed and examples of API usage are provided. Finally, Helioviewer.org is undergoing continual development with new features being added monthly. Recent changes to the web application are discussed, along with a preview of things to come.

  2. Structural analysis and shape-preferred orientation determination of the mélange facies in the Chañaral mélange, Las Tórtolas Formation, Coastal Cordillera, northern Chile

    This study sheds light on the tectonic and structural knowledge of the mélange facies located to the south of Chañaral city, Chile. The Chañaral mélange has been related to an accretionary prism at the western active continental margin of Gondwana. Based on the fossil content, the original turbidite sequence would have been deposited during Devonian to Carboniferous times. The Chañaral mélange is included in the Las Tórtolas Formation, which corresponds to the Paleozoic metasedimentary basement located in the Coastal Range in northern Chile. It consists of a monotonous sequence of more than 90% of interbedded sandstones and shales, with a few limestones, pelagic chert, conglomerates and basic volcanic rocks, metamorphosed to the greenschist facies. In the study area, the Las Tórtolas Formation is divided into two structural domains separated by a major reverse dextral structure, called here the Infieles fault. To the east, the Las Tórtolas Formation is characterized by a brittle-ductile deformation, defined by the original sedimentary contacts in the turbiditic sequence. Besides, thrust faults and associated thrust propagation folds promotes a penetrative axial plane foliation. Mélange facies are located to the west of the Infieles fault. Although lithologies comprising this domain are similar to the rest of the Las Tórtolas Formation, mélange facies (ductile domain) are characterized by the complete disruption of the original architecture of the turbidite succession. The most significant structures in the mélange are the ubiquitous boudinage and pinch and swell structures, asymmetric objects, S-C structures and tight to isoclinal folds. This deformation is partitioned in the Chañaral mélange between linear fabric domains (L), characterized by quartzite blocks with prolate shape in a phyllite matrix with pencil structures, and linear-planar fabric domains (L-S), where quartzite objects show oblate shape and phyllites present a penetrative foliation

    As a rare multisystem congenital anomaly disorder, Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS) is featured by delayed growth and development, distinct facial dimorphism, limb malformations and multiple organ defects. CdLS is a genetic syndrome affecting 1/10000-1/60000 neonates with unknown genetic basis. Delayed growth and development, hirsute, structural anomalies of the limbs and distinct facial dimorphism are considered as its main clinical characteristics. Introducing CdLS cases of different ethnic backgrounds could add distinctions to the phenotypic picture of the syndrome and be useful in diagnosis. Early diagnosis and decreased death rates are achievable through enhanced awareness on this syndrome. We present here a 45-day-old girl, as the first case of Cornelia in Golestan (Northern Iran), referred to our hospital with the symptoms as mentioned above. PMID:27042551

    1996-03-01

    The efficacy of the neurotrophic peptide ORG 2766 in diabetic patients with polyneuropathy was evaluated in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicentre trial. One hundred and twenty four patients were randomised in five groups to receive 0.1, 0.4, 2 or 5 mg ORG 2766 or placebo, once daily, administered subcutaneously 52 weeks. Thermal discrimination thresholds (TDT) and vibration perception thresholds (VPT), motor and sensory nerve conduction velocity, Hoffmann reflex, heart rate variation during deep breathing and heart rate response after standing up, neurological examination score and neuropathic symptom score were determined at baseline and after 17, 34 and 52 weeks of treatment. Of the nerve function indices studied, at week 52 the TDTwarmth of the hand in the ORG 2766 0.1, 0.4 and 5 mg groups and the TDTcold of the foot in the ORG 2766 0.1 and 0.4 mg groups significantly improved compared with placebo. Further significant improvement as compared with placebo was observed in the paraesthesia score at week 34 and week 52 in the ORG 2766 2 mg group. Only at week 34 had both the heartbeat variation during deep breathing and the VPT of the foot in the ORG 2766 0.1 mg group improved significantly, compared with placebo. No further statistically significant differences were observed at time for the other measures. No adverse reactions were observed. The only recorded drug-induced side effect was pain at the injection site. Taking all measures of efficacy into account, the statistically significant results observed did not show consistency within each measure. Therefore, it is concluded that ORG 2766, in contrast to earlier reports, is not effective in treating diabetic polyneuropathy. PMID:8936356

    Full Text Available The article presents an unofficial discussion that took place between one of the most prominent Polish critics of the late 19th century and Antoni Lange, a raising poet of the 90s, whose work had gained little attention from the older colleague. Mentioned briefly in Chmielowski’s Współczesni poeci polscy in 1895, Lange responded to some of the critic’s fterwards. Chmielowski did not respond to that directly, however, his review of Lange’s volume of poetry published at the time and the will to defend his claims using the adversary’s poetry as a pretext shows that the young poet had succeeded in provoking the respected critic to take defensive position. The two writers, discussing an ongoing ‘crisis’ of poetry, present their own perspectives on the roots of the situation. Chmielowski’s claims from the beginning of the 20th century prove that the dispute, unofficial as it was, was won by Antoni Lange.

    Full Text Available Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS (also called Bushy Syndrome or Amsterdam dwarfism, is a genetic disorder that can lead to several alterations. This disease affects both physical and neuropsychiatric development. The various abnormalities include facial dysmorphia (arched eyebrows, synophrys, depressed nasal bridge, long philtrum, down-turned angles of the mouth, upper-extremity malformations, hirsutism, cardiac defects, and gastrointestinal alterations. The prevalence of this syndrome is approximately one per 15,000. Ultrasound is not the perfect means to diagnose CdLS, however, many abnormalities can be detected prenatally by scrupulous image observation. We report an atypical CdLS case characterized by increased nuchal translucency in the first trimester, normal karyotype, saddle nose, micrognathia with receding jaw, low set ears, facies senilis, arthrogryposis of the hands, absence of the Aranzio ductus venous, dilatation of gallbladder and bowel, a unique umbilical artery, increased volume of amniotic fluid, and intrauterine growth retardation ending with the interruption of pregnancy.

    Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS) is a rare, congenital syndrome characterized by growth retardation, dysmorphic face, mental retardation and limb reduction defects. Clinical manifestations of CdLS can be extremely variable. Mutations in NIPBL, SMC1A and SMC3 genes, encoding for a regulator and two subunits of the cohesin complex, respectively, are found in 60-65% of CdLS patients. We report on a male with CdLS who is mosaic for the c.2827delA mutation in the NIPBL gene. Allele quantitation by pyrosequencing showed the presence of the mutation in about 10% and 33% of DNA samples from peripheral blood and buccal smears, respectively. The patient shows a complex phenotype: growth and psychomotor retardation are characteristic of the severe forms of CdLS, while the absence of severe limb reduction defects and major malformations are typical of the mild phenotype. He also has depigmentation areas following Blashko lines, an unusual finding in CdLS, which has been associated with mosaicism in other genetic conditions. This case represents the first evidence of somatic mosaicism in CdLS and explains the mild phenotype in the patient as compared to that predicted by a truncating mutation. Besides confirming the clinical and genetic heterogeneity of CdLS, this case also raises the likely underestimated mutation rate of known genes and points to the complexity of addressing genotype-phenotype correlations.

    Facial analysis systems are becoming available to healthcare providers to aid in the recognition of dysmorphic phenotypes associated with a multitude of genetic syndromes. These technologies automatically detect facial points and extract various measurements from images to recognize dysmorphic features and evaluate similarities to known facial patterns (gestalts). To evaluate such systems' usefulness for supporting the clinical practice of healthcare professionals, the recognition accuracy of the Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS) phenotype was examined with FDNA's automated facial dysmorphology novel analysis (FDNA) technology. In the first experiment, 2D facial images of CdLS patients with either an NIPBL or SMC1A gene mutation as well as non-CdLS patients which were assessed by dysmorphologists in a previous study were evaluated by the FDNA technology; the average detection rate of experts was 77% while the system's detection rate was 87%. In the second study, when a new set of NIPBL, SMC1A and non-CdLS patient photos was evaluated, the detection rate increased to 94%. The results from both studies indicated that the system's detection rate was comparable to that of dysmorphology experts. Therefore, utilizing such technologies may be a useful tool in a clinical setting. PMID:26663098

  4. ModeLang: a new approach for experts-friendly viral infections modeling.

    Computational modeling is an important element of systems biology. One of its important applications is modeling complex, dynamical, and biological systems, including viral infections. This type of modeling usually requires close cooperation between biologists and mathematicians. However, such cooperation often faces communication problems because biologists do not have sufficient knowledge to understand mathematical description of the models, and mathematicians do not have sufficient knowledge to define and verify these models. In many areas of systems biology, this problem has already been solved; however, in some of these areas there are still certain problematic aspects. The goal of the presented research was to facilitate this cooperation by designing seminatural formal language for describing viral infection models that will be easy to understand for biologists and easy to use by mathematicians and computer scientists. The ModeLang language was designed in cooperation with biologists and its computer implementation was prepared. Tests proved that it can be successfully used to describe commonly used viral infection models and then to simulate and verify them. As a result, it can make cooperation between biologists and mathematicians modeling viral infections much easier, speeding up computational verification of formulated hypotheses.

    Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS) is a cohesinopathy causing delayed growth and limb deficits. Individuals with CdLS have mild to profound intellectual disability and autistic features. This study characterizes the behavioral phenotype of children with CdLS, focusing on autistic features, maladaptive behaviors, and impact of age. Children with CdLS (5-18 years) were administered normed instruments to characterize autism features (Childhood Autism Rating Scale, CARS), maladaptive behaviors (Aberrant Behavior Checklist), and adaptive skills (Vineland Adaptive Behaviors Scales). CdLS features and severity were rated with Diagnostic Criteria for CdLS. Forty-one children with CdLS (23 females, 18 males) were classified as having "no autism" (n = 7; 17.1%), "mild autism" (n = 17; 41.4%), and "severe autism" (n = 17; 41.4%), using CARS scores. Characteristic items were abnormal emotional response, stereotypies, odd object use, rigidity, lack of verbal communication, and low intellectual functioning. Verbal communication deficits and repetitive behaviors were higher compared to sensory, social cognition, and behavior abnormalities (P ≤ 0.0001). Maladaptive behaviors associated with autism traits were stereotypies (P = 0.003), hyperactivity (P = 0.01), and lethargy (P = 0.03). Activities of daily living were significantly affected; socialization adaptive skills were a relative strength. However, with advancing age, both socialization (P socialization adaptive skills are less affected. Advancing age can worsen communication and socialization deficits relative to neurotypical peers.

    Neurobehavioral and developmental issues with a broad range of deficits are prominent features of Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS), a disorder due to disruption of the cohesin protein complex. The etiologic relationship of these clinical findings to anatomic abnormalities on neuro-imaging studies has not, however, been established. Anatomic abnormalities in the brain and central nervous system specific to CdLS have been observed, including changes in the white matter, brainstem, and cerebellum. We hypothesize that location and severity of brain abnormalities correlate with clinical phenotype in CdLS, as seen in other developmental disorders. In this study, we retrospectively evaluated brain MRI studies of 15 individuals with CdLS and compared these findings to behavior at the time of the scan. Behavior was assessed using the Aberrant Behavior Checklist (ABC), a validated behavioral assessment tool with several clinical features. Ten of fifteen (67%) of CdLS patients had abnormal findings on brain MRI, including cerebral atrophy, white matter changes, cerebellar hypoplasia, and enlarged ventricles. Other findings included pituitary tumors or cysts, Chiari I malformation and gliosis. Abnormal behavioral scores in more than one behavioral area were seen in all but one patient. All 5 of the 15 (33%) patients with normal structural MRI studies had abnormal ABC scores. All normal ABC scores were noted in only one patient and this was correlated with moderately abnormal MRI changes. Although our cohort is small, our results suggest that abnormal behaviors can exist in individuals with CdLS in the setting of relatively normal structural brain findings. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

  9. Drosophila Nipped-B Mutants Model Cornelia de Lange Syndrome in Growth and Behavior.

    2015-11-01

    Full Text Available Individuals with Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS display diverse developmental deficits, including slow growth, multiple limb and organ abnormalities, and intellectual disabilities. Severely-affected individuals most often have dominant loss-of-function mutations in the Nipped-B-Like (NIPBL gene, and milder cases often have missense or in-frame deletion mutations in genes encoding subunits of the cohesin complex. Cohesin mediates sister chromatid cohesion to facilitate accurate chromosome segregation, and NIPBL is required for cohesin to bind to chromosomes. Individuals with CdLS, however, do not display overt cohesion or segregation defects. Rather, studies in human cells and model organisms indicate that modest decreases in NIPBL and cohesin activity alter the transcription of many genes that regulate growth and development. Sister chromatid cohesion factors, including the Nipped-B ortholog of NIPBL, are also critical for gene expression and development in Drosophila melanogaster. Here we describe how a modest reduction in Nipped-B activity alters growth and neurological function in Drosophila. These studies reveal that Nipped-B heterozygous mutant Drosophila show reduced growth, learning, and memory, and altered circadian rhythms. Importantly, the growth deficits are not caused by changes in systemic growth controls, but reductions in cell number and size attributable in part to reduced expression of myc (diminutive and other growth control genes. The learning, memory and circadian deficits are accompanied by morphological abnormalities in brain structure. These studies confirm that Drosophila Nipped-B mutants provide a useful model for understanding CdLS, and provide new insights into the origins of birth defects.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS is a dominantly inherited disorder characterized by facial dysmorphism, growth and cognitive impairment, limb malformations and multiple organ involvement. Mutations in NIPBL gene account for about 60% of patients with CdLS. This gene encodes a key regulator of the Cohesin complex, which controls sister chromatid segregation during both mitosis and meiosis. Turner syndrome (TS results from the partial or complete absence of one of the X chromosomes, usually associated with congenital lymphedema, short stature, and gonadal dysgenesis. Case presentation Here we report a four-year-old female with CdLS due to a frameshift mutation in the NIPBL gene (c.1445_1448delGAGA, who also had a tissue-specific mosaic 45,X/46,XX karyotype. The patient showed a severe form of CdLS with craniofacial dysmorphism, pre- and post-natal growth delay, cardiovascular abnormalities, hirsutism and severe psychomotor retardation with behavioural problems. She also presented with minor clinical features consistent with TS, including peripheral lymphedema and webbed neck. The NIPBL mutation was present in the two tissues analysed from different embryonic origins (peripheral blood lymphocytes and oral mucosa epithelial cells. However, the percentage of cells with monosomy X was low and variable in tissues. These findings indicate that, ontogenically, the NIPBL mutation may have appeared before the mosaic monosomy X. Conclusions The coexistence in several patients of these two rare disorders raises the issue of whether there is indeed a cause-effect association. The detailed clinical descriptions indicate predominant CdLS phenotype, although additional TS manifestations may appear in adolescence.

  11. Interpretation of tracer tests performed in fractured rock of the Lange Bramke basin, Germany

    Maloszewski, Piotr; Herrmann, Andreas; Zuber, Andrzej

    Two multitracer tests performed in one of the major cross-fault zones of the Lange Bramke basin (Harz Mountains, Germany) confirm the dominant role of the fault zone in groundwater flow and solute transport. Tracers having different coefficients of molecular diffusion (deuterium, bromide, uranine, and eosine) yielded breakthrough curves that can only be explained by a model that couples the advective-dispersive transport in the fractures with the molecular diffusion exchange in the matrix. For the scale of the tests (maximum distance of 225m), an approximation was used in which the influence of adjacent fractures is neglected. That model yielded nearly the same rock and transport parameters for each tracer, which means that the single-fracture approximation is acceptable and that matrix diffusion plays an important role. The hydraulic conductivity of the fault zone obtained from the tracer tests is about 1.5×10-2m/s, whereas the regional hydraulic conductivity of the fractured rock mass is about 3×10-7m/s, as estimated from the tritium age and the matrix porosity of about 2%. These values show that the hydraulic conductivity along the fault is several orders of magnitude larger than that of the remaining fractured part of the aquifer, which confirms the dominant role of the fault zones as collectors of water and conductors of fast flow.

    The Indus-Yarlung Suture Zone (IYSZ) is the boundary between rocks of Indian and Asian affinity. From north to south in southern Tibet, it exposes the preserved Asian forearc, ophiolitic rocks, tectonic mélanges, and Tethyan Himalayan strata of Indian affinity. The mélange has long been considered the accretionary prism corresponding to the ophiolite to the north which obducted onto the Indian margin prior to India-Asia collision. An outstanding issue is whether the ophiolitic rocks and mélanges were (1) obducted onto the northern margin of India or (2) associated with the Cordilleran-style southern margin of Asia, prior to India - Asia collision. Resolving this issue is fundamental to understanding the precollisional tectonic framework of the Neo-Tethyan realm, interpreting the timing of initial continental collision from detrital records, and locating the suture. We conducted geologic mapping and U/Pb detrital zircon provenance studies of the blocks and matrix of the mélanges and of Tethyan Himalayan units to the south at two localities: near Lhatse, which is ~140 km north of Mt. Everest and near Lopu Kangri, ~300 km along strike to the west. Near Lhatse the mélange is composed of a mudstone matrix with blocks of basalt, chert, mudstone, metabasite, limestone, and sandstone. The majority of the blocks are deep-water facies or consistent with oceanic crust, supporting the interpretation that the mélange is an accretionary complex formed by oceanic subduction. A south-dipping fault ~9 km north of Lhatse separates the mélange to the north from a continuous sequence of sandstone, shale, and minor limestone to the south. Previous work along strike suggests that this sequence, which has been previously identified as Tethyan affinity, contains Asian affinity detrital zircon populations. Near Lopu Kangri, the mélange is similar to that exposed in Lhatse. Over a distance of ~10 km to the southwest, blocks gradually increase in size to encompass ~2 km x ~10 km

    Many scientific domains, specifically in the geosciences, rely on physical samples as basic elements for study and experimentation. Samples are collected to analyze properties of natural materials and features that are key to our knowledge of Earth's dynamical systems and evolution, and to preserve a record of our environment over time. Huge volumes of samples have been acquired over decades or even centuries and stored in a large number and variety of institutions including museums, universities and colleges, state geological surveys, federal agencies, and industry. All of these collections represent highly valuable, often irreplaceable records of nature that need to be accessible so that they can be re-used in future research and for educational purposes. Many sample repositories are keen to use cyberinfrastructure capabilities to enhance access to their collections on the internet and to support and streamline collection management (accessioning of new samples, labeling, handling sample requests, etc.), but encounter substantial challenges and barriers to integrate digital sample management into their daily routine. They lack the resources (staff, funding) and infrastructure (hardware, software, IT support) to develop and operate web-enabled databases, to migrate analog sample records into digital data management systems, and to transfer paper- or spreadsheet-based workflows to electronic systems. Use of commercial software is often not an option as it incurs high costs for licenses, requires IT expertise for installation and maintenance, and often does not match the needs of the smaller repositories, being designed for large museums or different types of collections (art, archeological, biological). Geosamples.org is an alliance of sample repositories (academic, US federal and state surveys, industry) and data facilities that aims to develop a cyberinfrastructure that will dramatically advance access to physical samples for the research community, government

    2016-07-01

    The web service DNATCO (dnatco.org) classifies local conformations of DNA molecules beyond their traditional sorting to A, B and Z DNA forms. DNATCO provides an interface to robust algorithms assigning conformation classes called NTC: to dinucleotides extracted from DNA-containing structures uploaded in PDB format version 3.1 or above. The assigned dinucleotide NTC: classes are further grouped into DNA structural alphabet NTA: , to the best of our knowledge the first DNA structural alphabet. The results are presented at two levels: in the form of user friendly visualization and analysis of the assignment, and in the form of a downloadable, more detailed table for further analysis offline. The website is free and open to all users and there is no login requirement. PMID:27150812

    Many school districts within the United States continue to seek new ways of engaging students within Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. SAGANet.org, a web-based 501c3 Astrobiology outreach initiative, works with a number of schools, partnering K-12 students and their families with professional scientist mentors from around the world to teach and inspire students using virtual technology platforms. Current programs include two mentoring partnerships: pairing scientist-mentors with at-risk youth at the Pittsburg Community School in Pittsburg CA, and pairing scientist-mentors with families from the Kyrene del Cielo Elementary School in Chandler AZ. These programs represent two very different models for utilizing the virtual media platform provided by SAGANet.org to engage K-12 students and their families in STEM. For the former, scientists mentor the students of the Pittsburg School as part of the formal in-class curriculum. For the latter, scientists work with K-5 students and their families through Cielo's Science & Engineering Discovery Room to develop a science project as part of an informal learning experience that is independent of the formal curriculum. In this presentation, we (1) discuss the challenges and successes of engaging these two distinct audiences through virtual media, (2) present the results of how these two very-different mentoring partnership impact K-12 students science self-efficacy, interest in science, and STEM career awareness, and (3) share the impact of the mentoring experience on the mentor's confidence and self-efficacy with communicating science to the public.

  6. Approaches to Linked Open Data at data.oceandrilling.org

    2012-12-01

    The data.oceandrilling.org web application applies Linked Open Data (LOD) patterns to expose Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP), Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) and Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) data. Ocean drilling data is represented in a rich range of data formats: high resolution images, file based data sets and sample based data. This richness of data types has been well met by semantic approaches and will be demonstrated. Data has been extracted from CSV, HTML and RDBMS through custom software and existing packages for loading into a SPARQL 1.1 compliant triple store. Practices have been developed to streamline the maintenance of the RDF graphs and properly expose them using LOD approaches like VoID and HTML embedded structured data. Custom and existing vocabularies are used to allow semantic relations between resources. Use of the W3c draft RDF Data Cube Vocabulary and other approaches for encoding time scales, taxonomic fossil data and other graphs will be shown. A software layer written in Google Go mediates the RDF to web pipeline. The approach used is general and can be applied to other similar environments like node.js or Python Twisted. To facilitate communication user interface software libraries such as D3 and packages such as S2S and LodLive have been used. Additionally OpenSearch API's, structured data in HTML and SPARQL endpoints provide various access methods for applications. The data.oceandrilling.org is not viewed as a web site but as an application that communicate with a range of clients. This approach helps guide the development more along software practices than along web site authoring approaches.

    Leitner, Christoph; Köster, Mathias H.; Neubauer, Franz

    2015-04-01

    During Variscan orogeny in Carboniferous times, Gondwana and Europe collided to form Pangea (Stampfli et al., 2013). The succeeding Permian was a time of continental consolidation and erosion of the uplifted Vaiscan mountain belt but also its destruction by rifting processes forming the Tethys Sea (in its initial definition). During late Permian (c. 255-250 Ma), when the later Eastern Alps were located around north of the equator, evaporites of the Haselgebirge Formation (now exposed in Northern Calcareous Alps) were deposited. The location of the deposits was at around 10° north of the equator, which would be at the transition from a tropical climate to a moderate to semi-aride climate nowadays (Blakey, 2008), but on the other side the average temperature can be assumed higher than today (Berner, 1998). In salt mines, the Haselgebirge Fm. consists of a two-component tectonite of c. 50 % halite and 50 % sedimentary clastic and other evaporite rocks (Schauberger, 1986; Spötl 1998). Most of the clastic rocks are mud- to siltstones ("mudrock"). Its present appearance as a tectonic mélange is a result of the superimposed stages of Alpine orogenic events during Jurassic, Cretaceous and Cenocoic times. During the present study, we investigated the sedimentary/ diagenetic development of the evaporite rocks by field work in underground salt mines (Hallstatt, Berchtesgaden, Bad Dürrnberg, Altaussee), thin section analysis, SEM, RDX and EMPA. Mudrock needs a quiet or non-turbulent environment to settle down. Higher water energy leads to non-horizontal structures like ripples, re-sedimentation of clasts and a larger grain size. Therefore, water depth was in general deeper than 5 m, but the question remains unanswered how deep the basin could become in its deepest parts. Massive anhydrite rock precipitated from sea water (layered, black), while nodular/mosaic anhydrite (red) crystallized within the sediment (earlier or coevally). The transition gypsum  anhydrite

    Full Text Available BioCyc.org is a genome and metabolic pathway web portal covering 5500 organisms, including Homo sapiens, Arabidopsis thaliana, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Escherichia coli. These organism-specific databases have undergone variable degrees of curation. The EcoCyc (Escherichia coli Encyclopedia database is the most highly curated; its contents have been derived from 27,000 publications. The MetaCyc (Metabolic Encyclopedia database within BioCyc is a “universal” metabolic database that describes pathways, reactions, enzymes and metabolites from all domains of life. Metabolic pathways provide an organizing framework for analyzing metabolomics data, and the BioCyc website provides computational operations for metabolomics data that include metabolite search and translation of metabolite identifiers across multiple metabolite databases. The site allows researchers to store and manipulate metabolite lists using a facility called SmartTables, which supports metabolite enrichment analysis. That analysis operation identifies metabolite sets that are statistically over-represented for the substrates of specific metabolic pathways. BioCyc also enables visualization of metabolomics data on individual pathway diagrams and on the organism-specific metabolic map diagrams that are available for every BioCyc organism. Most of these operations are available both interactively and as programmatic web services.

    2015-04-21

    Available biomedical ontologies and knowledge bases currently lack formal and standards-based interconnections between disease, disease vector, and drug treatment vocabularies. The PNNL Medical Linked Dataset (PNNL-MLD) addresses this gap. This paper describes the PNNL-MLD, which provides a unified vocabulary and dataset of drug, disease, side effect, and vector transmission background information. Currently, the PNNL-MLD combines and curates data from the following research projects: DrugBank, DailyMed, Diseasome, DisGeNet, Wikipedia Infobox, Sider, and PharmGKB. The main outcomes of this effort are a dataset aligned to Schema.org, including a parsing framework, and extensible hooks ready for integration with selected medical ontologies. The PNNL-MLD enables researchers more quickly and easily to query distinct datasets. Future extensions to the PNNL-MLD will include Traditional Chinese Medicine, broader interlinks across genetic structures, a larger thesaurus of synonyms and hypernyms, explicit coding of diseases and drugs across research systems, and incorporating vector-borne transmission vocabularies.

    Full Text Available In order to identify new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases, biobanks systematically collect samples of human tissues and population-wide data on health and lifestyle. Efficient access to population biobank data and to biomaterial is crucial for development and marketing of new pharmaceutical products, especially in the area of personalised medicine. However, such access is hindered by legal and ethical constraints, and by the huge semantic diversity across different biobanks. To address these challenges, we have developed SAIL, a sophisticated metaportal for biobank data annotation across different collections and repositories, harmonised to allow cross-biobank searchability, while preserving the anonymity and privacy of the underlying data such that legal and ethical requirements are met. We describe the technological architecture and design of SAIL that allows us to meet these pressing challenges, and give an overview of the current functionality of the application. SAIL is available online at sail.simbioms.org, and it currently contains around 200 000 samples from 14 collections.

    Comparative genomics provides the means to demarcate functional regions in anonymous DNA sequences. The successful application of this method to identifying novel genes is currently shifting to deciphering the noncoding encryption of gene regulation across genomes. To facilitate the use of comparative genomics to practical applications in genetics and genomics we have developed several analytical and visualization tools for the analysis of arbitrary sequences and whole genomes. These tools include two alignment tools: zPicture and Mulan; a phylogenetic shadowing tool: eShadow for identifying lineage- and species-specific functional elements; two evolutionary conserved transcription factor analysis tools: rVista and multiTF; a tool for extracting cis-regulatory modules governing the expression of co-regulated genes, CREME; and a dynamic portal to multiple vertebrate and invertebrate genome alignments, the ECR Browser. Here we briefly describe each one of these tools and provide specific examples on their practical applications. All the tools are publicly available at the http://www.dcode.org/ web site.

    Orogenic wedges locally present chaotic tectonostratigraphic units that contain exotic blocks of various size, origin, age and lithology, embedded in a sedimentary matrix. The occurrence of ophiolitic blocks, sometimes huge, in such "mélanges" raises questions on (i) the mechanisms responsible for the incorporation of oceanic basement rocks into an accretionary wedge and (ii) the mechanisms allowing exhumation and redeposition of these exotic elements in "mélanges" during wedge growth. To address these questions, we present the results of a series of analogue experiments performed to characterize the processes and parameters responsible for accretion, exhumation and tectonosedimentary reworking of oceanic basement lithospheric fragments in an accretionary wedge. The experimental setup is designed to simulate the interaction between tectonics, erosion and sedimentation. Different configurations are applied to study the impact of various parameters, such as irregular oceanic floor due to structural inheritance, or the presence of layers with contrasted rheology that can affect deformation partitioning in the wedge (frontal accretion vs basal accretion) influencing its growth. Image correlation technique allows extracting instantaneous velocity field, and tracking of passive particles. By retrieving the particle paths determined from models, the pressure-temperature path of mélange units or elementary blocks can be discussed. The experimental results are then compared with observations from ophiolite-bearing mélanges in Taiwan (Lichi and Kenting mélanges) and Raman spectroscopy of carbonaceous material (RSCM) Thermometry data on rocks from the northern Apennines (Casanova mélange). A geological scenario is proposed following basic observations. The tectonic evolution of the retroside of doubly vergent accretionary wedges is mainly controlled by backthrusting and backfolding. The retro wedge is characterized by steep slopes that are prone to gravitational

    1998-01-01

    This introduction to the recent exciting developments in the applications of model theory to algebraic geometry, illustrated by E. Hrushovski's model-theoretic proof of the geometric Mordell-Lang Conjecture starts from very basic background and works up to the detailed exposition of Hrushovski's proof, explaining the necessary tools and results from stability theory on the way. The first chapter is an informal introduction to model theory itself, making the book accessible (with a little effort) to readers with no previous knowledge of model theory. The authors have collaborated closely to achieve a coherent and self- contained presentation, whereby the completeness of exposition of the chapters varies according to the existence of other good references, but comments and examples are always provided to give the reader some intuitive understanding of the subject.

    1998-10-01

    The present study was conducted to test the effects of exercise stress on the ECG of the congenitally deaf children from school for deaf, in view of the occurrence of the Jervell-Lange Neilsen (Surdo Cardiac) variant of the Long QT Syndrome (LQTS) in them. An ECG Lead II was recorded at rest and after two minutes of static jogging. For comparison, the same protocol was repeated in normal healthy children from another school. ECG were analysed for the calculation of corrected QT interval (QTc) by Bazett's equation QTc = QT/square root of R-R and also for the evidence for other abnormalities. Both in the normal and deaf children, exercise did not produce significant (P > 0.05) change in QTc from their resting values. However, when pre and post exercise QTc values of deaf children were compared with normal children, the female deaf had significantly longer QTc (P < 0.01) both at rest and after exercise than normal female children. Normal children did not show significant ECG abnormality either at rest or on exercise. On the contrary many of their counter part (deaf) exhibited occasional ECG abnormality at rest but plethora of abnormalities after exercise viz., sinus arrhythmias, sinus pauses, ST depression, T-inversion, biphasic-T, notched-T, T-alternans, nodal ectopics and junctional rhythm. These results lend credence to the hypothesis of sympathetic imbalance and repolarisation defects in deaf children's heart, which in more severe form could pass into frank Jervell-Lange Neilsen variant of the Long: QT Syndrome.

    It is a major challenge to bring science and technology to the public at large and more particular to young people. This is even more true for marine sciences, due to the very nature of the study field and the fact that the underwater world is difficult to experience and communicate. Therefore it is not surprising that in Europe there are only few examples of marine educational projects that try to go beyond the ‘observe and describe' approach. In 2004 SHE Consultancy, the Flanders Marine Institute VLIZ and DAB Vloot developed a first Belgian e-learning programme dedicated to oceans and seas, with the support of the Flemish government ("Action plan Science Communication"). This programme ‘Expedition Zeeleeuw' (www.expeditiezeeleeuw.be), ran from 2005 till 2007 and challenged some 3000 Flemish students of 16-18 years old all over Flanders to find creative solutions for 10 major marine issues at the Belgian coast. The class that could convince the jury to have discovered the most creative and intelligent solutions, wan a one-week scientific expedition at sea on board the vessel Zeeleeuw. As a successor to ‘Expedition Zeeleeuw', a new e-learning project on marine science was developed in 2007: ‘Planeet Zee' i.e. ‘Planet Ocean' (www.planeetzee.org; info via info@planeetzee.org + demo-site in English available at www.planetocean.eu). The new marine and coastal e-learning project is presented as a virtual sailing trip on the Atlantic Ocean. It follows the adventures of two youngsters "borrowing" the yacht of their father and getting into trouble on the open ocean. On this journey they face 21 problems (eg. out of food, drinking water or fuel, fear for whales, Bermuda triangle, tsunami's etc… ), each of them introduced by a short movie clip. When they realize they can not solve the problem, they ask for radio help and - what a surprise! - get interesting answers from the Zeeleeuw research vessel and its 21 marine scientists on board, that appears to be in the

    Full Text Available The ability to transmit, organize, and query information digitally has brought with it the challenge of how to best use this power to facilitate scientific inquiry. Today, few information systems are able to provide detailed answers to complex questions about neuroscience that account for multiple spatial scales, and which cross the boundaries of diverse parts of the nervous system such as molecules, cellular parts, cells, circuits, systems and tissues. As a result, investigators still primarily seek answers to their questions in an increasingly densely populated collection of articles in the literature, each of which must be digested individually. If it were easier to search a knowledge base that was structured to answer neuroscience questions, such a system would enable questions to be answered in seconds that would otherwise require hours of literature review.In this article, we describe NeuroLex.org, a wiki-based website and knowledge management system. Its goal is to bring neurobiological knowledge into a framework that allows neuroscientists to review the concepts of neuroscience, with an emphasis on multiscale descriptions of the parts of nervous systems, aggregate their understanding with that of other scientists, link them to data sources and descriptions of important concepts in neuroscience, and expose parts that are still controversial or missing. To date, the site is tracking ~25,000 unique neuroanatomical parts and concepts in neurobiology spanning experimental techniques, behavioral paradigms, anatomical nomenclature, genes, proteins and molecules. Here we show how the structuring of information about these anatomical parts in the nervous system can be reused to answer multiple neuroscience questions, such as displaying all known GABAergic neurons aggregated in NeuroLex or displaying all brain regions that are known within NeuroLex to send axons into the cerebellar cortex.

    In the March issue of the Journal in 2012, we reported on a girl with Langer-Giedion syndrome (LGS) phenotype and a 7.5 Mb interstitial deletion at 8q23.3q24.13, encompassing the EXT1, but not the TRPS1 gene. Recent discoveries have shown that heterozygous intragenic mutations or contiguous gene deletions including the RAD21 gene, which is located downstream of the TRPS1 gene, are the cause of Cornelia de Lange syndrome-4. Considering that the interstitial deletion in our patient included the RAD21 and 30 other RefSeq genes, we would like to suggest a revision of the diagnosis reported in our previous paper and compare our patient to other reported patients with Cornelia de Lange syndrome-4 caused by heterozygous deletions of chromosome 8q24. © 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    The Xiukang Mélange of the Yarlung-Zangbo suture zone in south Tibet documents low efficiency of accretion along the southern active margin of Asia during Cretaceous Neotethyan subduction, followed by final development during the early Paleogene stages of the India-Asia collision. Here we investigate four transverses in the Xigaze area (Jiding, Cuola Pass, Riwuqi and Saga), inquiry the composition in each transverse, and present integrated petrologic, U-Pb detrital-zircon geochronology and Hf isotope data on sandstone blocks. In fault contact with the Yarlung-Zangbo Ophiolite to the north and the Tethyan Himalaya to the south, the Xiukang mélange can be divided into three types: serpentinite-matrix mélange composed by broken Yarlung-Zangbo Ophiolite, thrust-sheets consisting mainly chert, quartzose or limestone sheets(>100m) with little intervening marix, and mudstone-matrix mélange displaying typical blocks-in-matrix texture. While serpentinite-matrix mélange is exposed adjacent to the ophiolite, distributions of thrust-sheets and blocks in mudstone-matrix mélange show along-strike diversities. For example, Jiding transverse is dominant by chert sheets and basalt blocks with scarcely sandstone blocks, while Cuola Pass and Saga transverses expose large amounts of limestone/quartzarenite sheets in the north and volcaniclastic blocks in the south. However, turbidite sheets and volcaniclastic blocks are outcropped in the north Riwuqi transverse with quartzarenite blocks preserved in the south. Three groups of sandstone blocks/sheets with different provenance and depositional setting are distinguished by their petrographic, geochronological and isotopic fingerprints. Sheets of turbiditic quartzarenite originally sourced from the Indian continent were deposited in pre-Cretaceous time on the northernmost edge of the Indian passive margin and eventually involved into the mélange at the early stage of the India-Asia collision.

    The Chohar Gonbad-Gugher-Baft ophiolite mélange, located along the major Baft and Shahr-e-Babak fault zones, southeast Iran, represents remnants of Neo-Tethyan oceanic lithosphere. This mélange contains blocks of harzburgite, dunite, lherzolite, basalt, and other ophiolite-related lithologies tectonically mixed with and embedded in a serpentinite matrix. Field, petrographic, and geochemical data show that peridotites in this mélange belong to the upper mantle. They seem to have undergone up to ~20 % partial melting in a supra-subduction zone setting, based on their spinel Cr# values (0.21-0.53). Chemical compositions and textures in the serpentinites indicate that they were partially hydrated during emplacement and further mobilized diapirically to the surface. The different deformation stages occurred in an accretionary wedge environment. Petrographic evidence shows that the first serpentinization event produced mesh-textured serpentinites formed under static conditions in an ocean floor environment (Nain-Baft ocean crust), where the initial lizardite, bastite, and chrysotile veins formed. Plastic deformation occurred due to the subduction of Nain-Baft oceanic lithospheric beneath the central Iranian microcontinent, with antigorite-bearing flare-textured serpentinites produced. During progressive exhumation of the Nain-Baft ophiolite mélange, the serpentinites were affected by ductile, ductile-brittle, and brittle deformation, respectively. Accretion and resultant diapirism are the most important processes in the emplacement of serpentinite, which is a consequence of hydration of the ocean crust. In this example, late-stage emplacement via thrusting occurred along the northern extent of the southern Sanandaj-Sirjan zone (S-SZ).

    Full Text Available The samples of partly or completely altered basaltic extrusive rocks from Mt. Medvednica ophiolite mélange were analysed by the optical microscopy and by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD. The chemical composition of minerals from different paragenetic assembleges were determinated by electron probe microanalysis (EPMA and the measured microdomains were documented by back-scattered electrons (BSE imagery. The most widespread alteration processes that affected analysed rocks are albitization, chloritization, epidotization, prehnitization, pumpellyitization, zeolitization and titanitization. Subordinate processes that include formation of limonite, calcite, zoisite, siderite, hematite, Mn-oxydes, pyrite and SiO2-phases were not constrained in this paper. Albitization is fairly dominant alteration process in all rock and its progradation throughout a plagioclase grain is clearly documented by BSE microphotographs and microprobe chemical analysis. Prehnite and laumontite are sporadic alteration products of plagioclases. The chemical components released during the alterations of plagioclases and/or clinopyroxenes along with components from circulating and percolating heated see water and fluids enable formation of chlorites, epidote and pumpellyite. Chlorites and pumpellyite formed also by devitrification of volcanic glass in vitric rim of pillow lavas. Small patches of leucoxene, that is abundant in all samples, represent dense aggregates of titanite nanocrystals replacing ilmenite and/or Ti-magnetite. Epidote-bearing paragenesis in the analyzed rocks record comparatively the highest alterations grade that correspond to the middle grade of greenschist facies metamorphism typical of upper sequence of a see floor crust (the paper is published in Croatian.

    Full Text Available Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS is a congenital developmental disorder characterized by distinctive craniofacial features, growth retardation, cognitive impairment, limb defects, hirsutism, and multisystem involvement. Mutations in five genes encoding structural components (SMC1A, SMC3, RAD21 or functionally associated factors (NIPBL, HDAC8 of the cohesin complex have been found in patients with CdLS. In about 60% of the patients, mutations in NIPBL could be identified. Interestingly, 17% of them are predicted to change normal splicing, however, detailed molecular investigations are often missing. Here, we report the first systematic study of the physiological splicing of the NIPBL gene, that would reveal the identification of four new splicing isoforms ΔE10, ΔE12, ΔE33,34, and B’. Furthermore, we have investigated nine mutations affecting splice-sites in the NIPBL gene identified in twelve CdLS patients. All mutations have been examined on the DNA and RNA level, as well as by in silico analyses. Although patients with mutations affecting NIPBL splicing show a broad clinical variability, the more severe phenotypes seem to be associated with aberrant transcripts resulting in a shift of the reading frame.

    NifA in Azospirillum brasilense plays a key role in regulating the synthesis of nitrogenase in response to ammonia and oxygen available. Recently,our laboratory has identified four clones, whose gene prodcuts interact with NifA, from A. brasilense Sp7genomic libraries by using the yeast two-hybrid system with NifA as bait. We are interested in clone S35,one of the four clones, because it contains a PAS-domain coding region. The entire open reading frame (ORF) for the PAS domain-containing protein was isolated and designated as org35 here. org35gene is 2211-bp long and encodes a protein of 736aa with a predicted molecular weight of about 78.4 kD.The predicted amino acid sequence of org35 has similarity to some two-component sensor kinase/response regulator hybrids of bacteria. Structural analyses showed that Org35 comprises at least three discrete conserved domains: the N-terminal PAS, the central histidine protein kinase (HPK) and the C-terminal response regulator (RR). The PAS domain of the deduced Org35 protein was found to interact directly with NifA, but the central HPK and the C-terminal RR domains of Org35 were not. These results indicated that interaction between NifA and Org35 was mediated by PAS domain.

    The Scandinavian Caledonides have been long studied, yet their ever unfolding complexity renders them far from being fully understood. It has been recognized that the Caledonian Allochthons have neither a linear nor straightforward along-strike relationship (Corfu et al. 2014). A mélange unit has been recently identified as a separate tectonic unit (Andersen et al. 2012). This unit is structurally positioned below crystalline nappes previously assigned to the Middle Allochthon. The mélange comprises meta-sediments and minor meta-basalt/gabbro, but most intriguingly, numerous solitary meta-peridotites. These occur as 'Alpine type' meta-peridotites, serpentinites, soapstones and detrital serpentinites. We present results of a field study of the mélange in the B\\overdalen area, structurally below the Jotun nappe, and suggest that this provides further evidence that the regional mélange unit was formed in a hyperextended passive margin. The meta-peridotites represent exhumed serpentinized mantle and are intimately associated with meta-sediments. The sediments are garnetiferous chlorite-muscovite schists, graphitic schists, phyllites, amphibolites, meta-sandstones as well as quartzite-pebble dominated conglomerates. It is suggested that this highly heterogeneous unit formed during the early stages of rifting and hyperextension along the Baltican passive margin. Characteristics of the detrital peridotites suggests that serpentinite-talc protrusions may have formed islands. The processes involved are observed on modern margins where the best-studied example is the Iberia-Newfoundland passive margin. Work in present-day margins (mostly seismic reflection data) elucidate the large-scale structure of hyperextended margins, while studies of ancient exposed examples in mountain belts provide insight into the lithology, geochemistry and details of these margins. The widespread distribution of hyperextended margins in modern margins and the increasing number of recognizable

    There is an abundance of information in the literature on patient experiences with Internet support groups (ISGs). However, studies exploring these experiences in a rare disease population are scarce, even though these families are often at a disadvantage for resources, reliable information, and support. The aim of the current study was to explore the experiences with ISGs for parents of children with Cornelia de Lange syndrome (CdLS), a rare genetic diagnosis, in order to better understand the impact on emotional support and their child's medical care. Focus groups were conducted to inform the design of a large-scale internet survey. The survey asked parents closed- and open-ended questions regarding experiences with ISGs, with a focus on the psychosocial, medical, and logistical aspects. The survey found that 141/170 (82.6%) respondents have visited an Internet-based support group to find support or information about their child's CdLS diagnosis. The majority of respondents (71.7%) reported that ISGs have been helpful in finding emotional support, with the most common areas impacted as a result of ISG participation being behavior toward their children and family dynamic. Regarding medical care, most respondents (63.9%) reported that ISGs have been helpful in finding medical information and support, with the most commonly impacted areas of their child's care including day-to-day management, diet, therapy interventions, and healthcare providers. These findings provide a greater understanding of the role of Internet networking in healthcare and may inform future approaches to medical care and psychosocial support for rare, complex genetic diagnoses. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    Given the clinical complexities of Cornelia de Lange Syndrome (CdLS), the Center for CdLS and Related Diagnoses at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and The Multidisciplinary Clinic for Adolescents and Adults at Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC) were established to develop a comprehensive approach to clinical management and research issues relevant to CdLS. Little work has been done to evaluate the general utility of a multispecialty approach to patient care. Previous research demonstrates several advantages and disadvantages of multispecialty care. This research aims to better understand the benefits and limitations of a multidisciplinary clinic setting for individuals with CdLS and related diagnoses. Parents of children with CdLS and related diagnoses who have visited a multidisciplinary clinic (N = 52) and who have not visited a multidisciplinary clinic (N = 69) were surveyed to investigate their attitudes. About 90.0% of multispecialty clinic attendees indicated a preference for multidisciplinary care. However, some respondents cited a need for additional clinic services including more opportunity to meet with other specialists (N = 20), such as behavioral health, and increased information about research studies (N = 15). Travel distance and expenses often prevented families' multidisciplinary clinic attendance (N = 41 and N = 35, respectively). Despite identified limitations, these findings contribute to the evidence demonstrating the utility of a multispecialty approach to patient care. This approach ultimately has the potential to not just improve healthcare for individuals with CdLS but for those with medically complex diagnoses in general. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    Full Text Available This work reviews recent progress in the application of continuous thermodynamics towards calculation of phase equilibria in natural-gas mixtures. In such mixtures, there may be too many components to identify each component individually. Continuous thermodynamics provides a theoretical framework for representing the composition of a portion of the natural-gas mixture by a continuous distribution function. Advances in continuous thermodynamics are discussed in three areas :(1 Characterization and representation of composition in a many-component mixture(2 Development and application of molecular-thermodynamic models for continuous mixtures, and(3 Implementation of efficient numerical techniques for solving material-balance and phase-equilibrium equations. While continuous thermodynamics provides a useful tool for calculation of phase equilibria in natural-gas mixtures, successful implementation requires better chemical-analytical characterization methods. Further, improved semi-theoretical techniques must be developed to relate experimental characterization information to physically significant parameters in molecular-thermodynamic models. Ce travail examine les récents développements de l'application de la thermodynamique continue au calcul des équilibres de phases de mélanges de gaz naturel. Dans ces mélanges, les composants sont souvent en trop grand nombre pour qu'on puisse les identifier individuellement. La thermodynamique continue fournit un schéma théorique permettant de représenter la composition d'une partie de mélange de gaz naturel par une fonction de distribution continue.

    The Huashixia area in the Madoi County, Qinghai Province, western China is one of the most important areas for the studies of the formation and evolution of the A’nyemaqen mélange zone due to the well exposed, relatively complete tectonostratigraphic successions. However, the timing and evolu-tionary process of the A’nyemaqen paleo-ocean has long been poorly understood. Recently, we obtained abundant radiolarians from the siliceous rocks of the Maerzheng Formation of this mélange zone in Huashixia. Total 19 species in 10 radiolarian genera have been identified. They belong mainly to the Al-baillellaria, Spumellaria, Entactinaria, and Latentifistularia. Four radiolarian assemblage zones are es-tablished, including: thePseudoalbaillella rhombothoracata,Pseudoalbaillella scalprata,Ruzhencevispongus uralicus,andFollicucullus bipartitus-Follicucullussp. cf.F. ventricosus zones. Radiolarian faunal correla-tions suggest a late Artinskian–early Kungurian age and late Capitanian–early Wuchiapingian age for the first two zones from the lower part and the last two zones from the upper parts of the Maerzheng Forma-tion, respectively. All radiolarians are typical of deep water elements living in deep oceans in low latitudes during the Permian. Previously, the radiolarians of Early Carboniferous to Early Permian age and fusu-linids of Early–Middle Permian age have also been reported from the A’nyemaqen mélange successions. The combination of the newly found radiolarians with the previously reported faunal and microfloral as-semblages as well as radiometric ages obtained from the same stratigraphic units indicates that the A’nyemaqen paleo-ocean may have opened initially during the Early Carboniferous, expanded from the Early–Middle Permian, reached its acme in the early Late Permian, shrunk during the latest Permian to Early Triassic, and eventually was closed in the Middle Triassic.

    2010-12-01

    Full Text Available Members of a Swiss, Austrian and German network of health care libraries built a collaborative and freely accessible article reference database: http://bibnet.org/.The database contains primarily references of German health care journals. Since different libraries were cataloging articles on their own, the goal was to merge existing collections. As of November 2010 the database bibnet.org contains 45,000 article references from 400 journals. The records origin in the first place from the Rudolfinerhaus in Vienna and the Swiss Pro Senectute library, dating back till 1979. Additional records are beeing catalogued by participating libraries. Each participating library is responsible for an assigned set of journals. The project was built using exclusively Open Source components. Vufind as a discovery layer, KOHA as cataloguing system for those libraries without a capable ILS, Drupal as content management system and Doctor-Doc as linkresolver, ILL system and through its DAIA interface as knowledge database to indicate print holdings availability for the participating libraries.bibnet.org shows the potential libraries can have if they start to cooperate.

    The economical efficiency of the application of an increasing hydrogel dose in bispore mushrooms (Agaricus bisporus (Lange) Sing. Imbach SYLVAN 737) has been experimented in controlled weather conditions. It was found that the application of a 50 and 150 g•m-2 hydrogel dose is not economically proved due to the lack of harvest significant increase. In the cultivation of this particular variety of mushrooms, the optimal hydrogel dose should not be 100 g•m-2 of subsoil.

    2016-01-01

    With the advent of ribosome profiling, a next generation sequencing technique providing a "snap-shot'' of translated mRNA in a cell, many short open reading frames (sORFs) with ribosomal activity were identified. Follow-up studies revealed the existence of functional peptides, so-called micropeptides, translated from these 'sORFs', indicating a new class of bio-active peptides. Over the last few years, several micropeptides exhibiting important cellular functions were discovered. However, ribosome occupancy does not necessarily imply an actual function of the translated peptide, leading to the development of various tools assessing the coding potential of sORFs. Here, we introduce sORFs.org (http://www.sorfs.org), a novel database for sORFs identified using ribosome profiling. Starting from ribosome profiling, sORFs.org identifies sORFs, incorporates state-of-the-art tools and metrics and stores results in a public database. Two query interfaces are provided, a default one enabling quick lookup of sORFs and a BioMart interface providing advanced query and export possibilities. At present, sORFs.org harbors 263 354 sORFs that demonstrate ribosome occupancy, originating from three different cell lines: HCT116 (human), E14_mESC (mouse) and S2 (fruit fly). sORFs.org aims to provide an extensive sORFs database accessible to researchers with limited bioinformatics knowledge, thus enabling easy integration into personal projects.

    2004-10-04

    Research at the world's accelerator- (storage-ring and linac) based light sources is one of the most dynamic and rapidly growing fields of science. It frequently results in direct benefits to society, thereby demonstrating the value of the research with very concrete examples, but this is not widely understood or appreciated outside of the immediate user community. Our growing group of light source communicators from facilities in Europe, Asia, and the Americas, inspired by the Interactions.org Web site created by high-energy (elementary-particle)physics communicators, concluded that a light source community Web site (lightsources.org) would be the best tool for establishing effective collaboration between the communications offices of the world's light sources and to maximize the impact of our efforts. We envision lightsources.org to serve as a one-stop-shopping site for information about all aspects of light sources and the research they make possible. Audiences to be served include science communicators, the press, policymakers, the light source community, the wider scientific community, the science-interested public, and students and educators. Our proposal has been sent to the world's light source facility directors by J. Murray Gibson (APS) and William G. Stirling (ESRF). As a result,light sources.org is now being supported by a growing list of facilities from Europe, North America, and Asia. We hope to launch lightsources.org before the end of 2004.

  11. Microscopic deformation of the Neoarchean oceanic lithospheric mantle: evidence from the Zunhua Neoarchean ophiolitic mélange, North China Craton

    2003-01-01

    The microstructures of the mantle tectonites in the Zunhua Neoarchean ophiolitic mélange are mainly coarse-mosaic structures with locally interstitial impregnated melts. Olivine and orthopyroxene occur as residual porphyroclastic blasts, dynamic recrystallization neoblasts or elongated to be tabular. The podiform chromitites are mostly strongly deformed with the development of pull-apart structure. These microstructures are typical high-temperature plastic deformation in oceanic upper mantle resulting from ocean-floor spreading. Besides the high-temperature plastic deformation, undeformed magmatic intrusions such as undeformed podiform chromitite, dunite and pyroxenite intrusions are also preserved in the mantle tectonite. Structures of high-temperature plastic deformation and intensive magmatic activity prove that the Zunhua ophiolite was formed under fast spreading oceanic ridge, similar to the Oman ophiolite. And the microstructures of country rocks, such as quartz ribbon, core and mantle structure, dynamic recrystallization and mica-fish stucture, etc., were formed during the uplift of ophiolitic mélange from the mid-crust to the upper-crust associated with continental collision.

  12. Peak metamorphic temperatures from Raman Spectroscopy on Carbonaceous Matter (RSCM) and δ18O and δ13C (carb) isotope composition of a major mélange zone in the South Norwegian Caledonides

    2016-04-01

    A mélange in southern Norway comprises a matrix of garnet, mica- and black carbonaceous schists and phyllites of abyssal origin, interlayered with originally coarser grained siliciclastic metasediments, serpentinite conglomerates and sandstones, solitary metaperidotites and thin slivers of gneisses. Several models for the formation of the mélange have been suggested, including formation as a) an ophiolitic mélange formed during ophiolite obduction, b) an unconformable post-obduction transgressive sequence or c) a mélange formed during hyperextension along the pre-Caledonian margin of Baltica. In the past, the mélange has therefore not been treated as one single tectonic unit, but has been assigned to various tectonic positions with both outboard Iapetus and inboard Baltican origins. In this study we argue that the mélange occupies a tectonostratigraphic position below major Baltican basement nappe-complexes previously assigned to the Middle Allochthon. Furthermore, we present new consistent results on the peak metamorphic temperatures (T ˜ 500° C), based on RSCM, and a characteristic δ18Ocarb isotope composition (11-15.5 ‰ SMOW), both consistent for more than 250 km along strike of the mélange. δ13Ccarb values fall within three clusters around 1, ‑ 2 , and ‑ 7 ‰ (PDB), respectively. The stable isotope investigation presented here was carried out in order to explore if pre-Caledonian isotope signatures in various generations of carbonate veins and the early Ordovician fossils at Otta, could have been preserved through a later Caledonian metamorphic overprint. The results presented here however, suggest that re-equilibration of the carbonates took place in the Silurian, most likely coeval with peak metamorphism of ˜ 500° C at ˜ 420 Ma, and the main fabric development close to the base of the nappe-stack. Re-equilibration of the carbonates was assisted by the presence a pervasive static fluid, allowing for oxygen isotope exchange with the

    The in vitro and in vivo pharmacology of two glycine transporter-1 (GlyT1) inhibitors, N[3-(4'-fluorophenyl)-3-(4'-phenylphenoxy)-propyl]sarcosine (NFPS) and R,S-(+/-)N-methyl-N-[(4-trifluoromethyl)phenoxy]-3-phenyl-propylglycine (Org 24461), was studied. NFPS and Org 24461 inhibited the uptake of [3H]glycine in hippocampal synaptosomal preparation with IC(50) values of 0.022 and 2.5 microM. Neither NFPS nor Org 24461 (0.1 microM) showed significant binding to alpha-1, alpha-2, and beta-adrenoceptors, D(1) and D(2) dopamine receptors, and 5-HT(1A) and 5-HT(2A) serotonin receptors in membranes prepared from rat brain or to cloned 5-HT(6) and 5-HT(7) receptors. At 10 microM concentrations, binding affinity was measured for NFPS to 5-HT(2A) and 5-HT(2C) serotonin receptors and alpha-2 adrenoceptors and for NFPS and Org 24461 to 5-HT(7) serotonin receptors. Glycine (0.1 mM) and sarcosine (5 mM) increased [3H]glycine efflux from superfused rat hippocampal slices preloaded with [3H]glycine. NFPS and Org 24461 (0.1 mM) did not influence [3H]glycine efflux, however, they inhibited glycine-induced [3H]glycine release. These findings indicate that NFPS and Org 24461 selectively inhibit glycine uptake without being substrates of the transporter protein. Several antipsychotic tests were used to characterize antipsychotic effects of NFPS and Org 24461 in vivo. These compounds did not alter apomorphine-induced climbing and stereotypy in a dose of 10 mg/kg p.o. in mice and did not induce catalepsy in a dose of 10 mg/kg i.p. in rats. The ID(50) values of NFPS were 21.4 mg/kg and higher than 30 mg/kg i.p. for inhibition of phencyclidine (PCP)- and D-amphetamine-induced hypermotility in mice and these values were 2.5 and 8.6 mg/kg i.p. for Org 24461. NFPS and Org 24461 did not exhibit anxiolytic effects in light-dark test in mice, in the meta-chlorophenylpiperazine (mCPP)-induced anxiety test (minimal effective dose or MED was higher than 3 mg/kg i.p.) and in the Vogel conflict

    This contribution provides an overview of Paleomagnetism.org, an open-source, multi-platform online environment for paleomagnetic data analysis. Paleomagnetism.org provides an interactive environment where paleomagnetic data can be interpreted, evaluated, visualized, and exported. The Paleomagnetism.org application is split in to an interpretation portal, a statistics portal, and a portal for miscellaneous paleomagnetic tools. In the interpretation portal, principle component analysis can be performed on visualized demagnetization diagrams. Interpreted directions and great circles can be combined to find great circle solutions. These directions can be used in the statistics portal, or exported as data and figures. The tools in the statistics portal cover standard Fisher statistics for directions and VGPs, including other statistical parameters used as reliability criteria. Other available tools include an eigenvector approach foldtest, two reversal test including a Monte Carlo simulation on mean directions, and a coordinate bootstrap on the original data. An implementation is included for the detection and correction of inclination shallowing in sediments following TK03.GAD. Finally we provide a module to visualize VGPs and expected paleolatitudes, declinations, and inclinations relative to widely used global apparent polar wander path models in coordinates of major continent-bearing plates. The tools in the miscellaneous portal include a net tectonic rotation (NTR) analysis to restore a body to its paleo-vertical and a bootstrapped oroclinal test using linear regressive techniques, including a modified foldtest around a vertical axis. Paleomagnetism.org provides an integrated approach for researchers to work with visualized (e.g. hemisphere projections, Zijderveld diagrams) paleomagnetic data. The application constructs a custom exportable file that can be shared freely and included in public databases. This exported file contains all data and can later be

    Full Text Available As hortaliças são os alimentos que mais se destacam, em artigos científicos e em jornais, quando se trata de contaminação com agrotóxicos. Isso tem levado ao aumento na demanda por produtos orgânicos por parte dos consumidores. Há, então, a necessidade de se desenvolverem tecnologias que viabilizem esses sistemas, atendendo ao consumidor e melhorando a renda dos agricultores, geralmente de base familiar. A produção de hortaliças em sistema orgânico requer tecnologias que respeitem os processos ecológicos, que promovam o aumento da matéria orgânica do solo e que sejam poupadoras de energia. Neste artigo, são discutidas algumas dessas tecnologias e resultados de pesquisas, com foco em produção de mudas, manejo e adubação do solo, adubação verde, rotação de culturas, consórcio de hortaliças, manejo de plantas espontâneas e manejo de pragas e doenças, que são práticas aprovadas pelas normas para produção orgânica e seguem os princípios agroecológicos, que contribuem para a maior eficiência energética dos sistemas produtivos e, em conjunto, para o necessário desenvolvimento do setor de produção de hortaliças orgânicas com base científica.

  7. A Kind of Optimization Method of Loading Documents in OpenOffice.org

    Science.gov (United States)

    Lan, Yuqing; Li, Li; Zhou, Wenbin

    As a giant in open source community, OpenOffice.org has become the most popular office suite within Linux community. But OpenOffice.org is relatively slow while loading documents. Research shows that the most time consuming part is importing one page of whole document. If there are many pages in a document, the accumulation of time consumed can be astonishing. Therefore, this paper proposes a solution, which has improved the speed of loading documents through asynchronous importing mechanism: a document is not imported as a whole, but only part of the document is imported at first for display, then mechanism in the background is started to asynchronously import the remaining parts, and insert it into the drawing queue of OpenOffice.org for display. In this way, the problem can be solved and users don't have to wait for a long time. Application start-up time testing tool has been used to test the time consumed in loading different pages of documents before and after optimization of OpenOffice.org, then, we adopt the regression theory to analyse the correlation between the page number of documents and the loading time. In addition, visual modeling of the experimental data are acquired with the aid of matlab. An obvious increase in loading speed can be seen after a comparison of the time consumed to load a document before and after the solution is adopted. And then, using Microsoft Office compared with the optimized OpenOffice.org, their loading speeds are almost same. The results of the experiments show the effectiveness of this solution.

  13. Ultra-oxidized rocks in subduction mélanges? Decoupling between oxygen fugacity and oxygen availability in a Mn-rich metasomatic environment

    The manganese ore of Praborna (Italian Western Alps) is embedded within a metasedimentary sequence belonging to a subduction mélange equilibrated at high-pressure (HP) conditions (ca. 2 GPa) during the Alpine orogenesis. The pervasive veining of the ore and the growth of "pegmatoid" HP minerals suggest that these Mn-rich rocks strongly interacted with slab-derived fluids during HP metamorphism. These rocks are in textural and chemical equilibrium with the veins and in contact with sulphide- and magnetite-bearing metabasites at the bottom of the sequence. They contain braunite (Mn2+Mn3+6SiO12), quartz, pyroxmangite (Mn2+SiO3), and minor hematite, omphacite, piemontite and spessartine-rich garnet. Sulphides are absent in the Mn-rich rocks, whereas sulphates (barite, celestine) occur together with As- and Sb-oxides and silicates. This rock association provides an excellent natural laboratory to constrain the redox conditions in subducting oceanic slab mélanges at HP and fluid-present conditions. Similarly to Fe-bearing minerals, Mn oxides and silicates can be regarded as natural redox-sensors. A thermodynamic dataset for these Mn-bearing minerals is built, using literature data as well as new thermal expansion parameters for braunite aud pyrolusite, derived from experiments. Based on this dataset and the observed assemblages at Praborna, thermodynamic calculations show that these mélange rocks are characterised by ultra-oxidized conditions (∆FMQ up to + 12.7) if the chemical potential of oxygen (or the oxygen fugacity fO2) is accounted for. On the other hand, if the molar quantity of oxygen is used as the independent state variable to quantify the bulk oxidation state, the ore appears only moderately oxidized and comparable to typical subduction-slab mafic eclogites. Such an apparent contradiction may happen in rock systems whenever oxygen is improperly considered as a perfectly mobile component. In the Earth's mantle, redox reactions take place mainly between

    Full Text Available Despite evaluation of large number of agroindustrial wastes for their use as casing material for Agaricus bisporus (Lange Imbach cultivation, scant attention has been given to the importance of biological properties of casing materials. In the present study, an attempt was made to characterize the bacterial flora in casing layer, namely, Farm Yard Manure (FYM and Spent Mushroom Substrate/spent compost (SMS/SC (FYM+SC, 3 : 1 and FYM and Vermi Compost (VC (FYM+VC, 3 : 1, employing partial 16S rDNA sequencing. Available data showed a significant variety of organisms that included Acinetobacter and Pseudomonas of the γ-proteobacteria, that were the most frequently encountered genera. This is the first preliminary report on the microbial diversity of casing soils and demonstrates the presence of Acinetobacter spp. that has not been previously described in casing material.

  15. Are seasonal calving dynamics forced by buttressing from ice mélange or undercutting by melting? Outcomes from full-Stokes simulations of Store Gletscher, West Greenland

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    J. Todd

    2014-07-01

    Full Text Available We use a full-Stokes 2-D model (Elmer/Ice to investigate the flow and calving dynamics of Store Gletscher, a fast flowing outlet glacier in West Greenland. Based on a new, subgrid-scale implementation of the crevasse depth calving criterion, we perform two sets of simulations; one to identify the primary forcing mechanisms and another to constrain future stability. We find that the mixture of icebergs and sea-ice, known as ice mélange or sikussak, is principally responsible for the observed seasonal advance of the ice front, whereas submarine melting plays a secondary role. Sensitivity analysis demonstrates that the glacier's calving dynamics are sensitive to seasonal perturbation, but are stable on interannual timescales due to the glacier's topographic setting. Our results shed light on the dynamics of calving glaciers while explaining why neighbouring glaciers do not necessarily respond synchronously to changes in atmospheric and oceanic forcing.

A proposta da primeira etapa da pesquisa da qual este artigo é resultado se concentrou no estudo das cartas inéditas trocadas entre Curt Lange e o mais renomado modernista brasileiro, Mário de Andrade. O ineditismo destas cartas, ainda não utilizadas como objeto de pesquisa até aquele momento, demonstrou a relevância desta investigação que ainda está em andamento. Apesar do foco da primeira etapa se concentrar nas cartas trocadas entre Lange e Mário de Andrade, durante a pesquisa, diversos outros atores tais como, Villa-Lobos, Camargo Guarnieri, Guerra-Peixe, Koellreuter e Claudio Santoro apareceram dentro de uma rede de sociabilidades tecida pelo projeto musicológico de Curt Lange: o Americanismo Musical. A ampliação do estudo desta rede se concentra agora nas cartas trocadas entre Curt Lange e Cláudio Santoro (1919-1989. O presente artigo trata daquelas cartas trocadas entre os anos nos de 1942 e 1946 e os diálogos estas com esta rede mais ampla. Este é um momento decisivo para a vida musical de Claudio Santoro, pois este procurava se estabelecer como compositor em meio aos nacionalismos que emergiam num contexto político e cultural bastante significativo para a história da música no Brasil.

    Full Text Available Destruction at least ten times emphasized – an interpretation of 'Kraak die aardbol langs ’n naat' ('Cracking the earth along the seam' by Wilma Stockenström In this article the value of syntactical analysis in the interpretation of a poem is investigated from the premise that emphasis can be effected inter alia in the following ways: (a by contravening certain rules that apply in standard language usage in order to compose grammatical sentences, b the exploitation of parallel syntactical structures, and c the relationship between sentence unit and line, and line and/or stanza. These theoretical points of departure form the basis of the syntactical analysis of “Kraak die aardbol langs ’n naat” (Wilma Stockenström, in which there are numerous deviations from the expected, normal and usual ways of constructing sentences. It is by these means that the semantic values gain prominence: the attention is drawn to the deviating behaviour of mankind continuing to destruct the earth until nothing remains. It is evident that the repeated use of irony and the satirical tone of this poem also contribute to persuade the reader to behave in a way opposite to that depicted in the poem. In this way the value of a syntactical analysis of this poem is illustrated. By uncovering the micro-structures (syntactical units within the (macro- structure (the poem, underlying patterns and the place of humanity in the universe can be better understood. In this way the analysis of this poem is then linked to the field of ecocriticism.

    Neuronal morphology affects network connectivity, plasticity, and information processing. Uncovering the design principles and functional consequences of dendritic and axonal shape necessitates quantitative analysis and computational modeling of detailed experimental data. Digital reconstructions provide the required neuromorphological descriptions in a parsimonious, comprehensive, and reliable numerical format. NeuroMorpho.Org is the largest web-accessible repository service for digitally reconstructed neurons and one of the integrated resources in the Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF). Here we describe the NeuroMorpho.Org approach as an exemplary experience in designing, creating, populating, and curating a neuroscience digital resource. The simple three-tier architecture of NeuroMorpho.Org (web client, web server, and relational database) encompasses all necessary elements to support a large-scale, integrate-able repository. The data content, while heterogeneous in scientific scope and experimental origin, is unified in format and presentation by an in house standardization protocol. The server application (MRALD) is secure, customizable, and developer-friendly. Centralized processing and expert annotation yields a comprehensive set of metadata that enriches and complements the raw data. The thoroughly tested interface design allows for optimal and effective data search and retrieval. Availability of data in both original and standardized formats ensures compatibility with existing resources and fosters further tool development. Other key functions enable extensive exploration and discovery, including 3D and interactive visualization of branching, frequently measured morphometrics, and reciprocal links to the original PubMed publications. The integration of NeuroMorpho.Org with version-1 of the NIF (NIFv1) provides the opportunity to access morphological data in the context of other relevant resources and diverse subdomains of neuroscience, opening

    Full Text Available There are many public health benefits to cycling, such as chronic disease reduction and improved air quality. Real and perceived concerns about safety are primary barriers to new ridership. Due to limited forums for official reporting of cycling incidents, lack of comprehensive data is limiting our ability to study cycling safety and conduct surveillance. Our goal is to introduce BikeMaps.org, a new website developed by the authors for crowd-source mapping of cycling collisions and near misses. BikeMaps.org is a global mapping system that allows citizens to map locations of cycling incidents and report on the nature of the event. Attributes collected are designed for spatial modelling research on predictors of safety and risk, and to aid surveillance and planning. Released in October 2014, within two months the website had more than 14,000 visitors and mapping in 14 countries. Collisions represent 38% of reports (134/356 and near misses 62% (222/356. In our pilot city, Victoria, Canada, citizens mapped data equivalent to about one year of official cycling collision reports within two months via BikeMaps.org. Using report completeness as an indicator, early reports indicate that data are of high quality with 50% being fully attributed and another 10% having only one missing attribute. We are advancing this technology, with the development of a mobile App, improved data visualization, real-time altering of hazard reports, and automated open-source tools for data sharing. Researchers and citizens interested in utilizing the BikeMaps.org technology can get involved by encouraging citizen mapping in their region.

  6. The student protest in Galicia against the “Ley Orgánica de Universidades”

    OpenAIRE

    Ramos Martínez, Ivan Julio

    2006-01-01

    The Spanish government's “Ley Orgánica de Universidades” (which entailed a controversial reorganisation of Higher Education in Spain) provoked widespread protest towards the end of 2001. The reaction in Galicia was especially notable for the number of people involved, and the degree and intensity of their protests. In this essay I examine the key factors behind the strong reaction in Galicia, using three classic theories in the study of the collective action: mobilization of resources, polit...

    2015-01-01

    Nonlinear Model Predictive Control (NMPC) is a control strategy based on repeatedly solving an optimal control problem. In this paper we present a new MPC framework for the JModelica.org platform, developed specifically for use in NMPC schemes. The new framework utilizes the fact that the optimal control problem to be solved does not change between solutions, thus decreasing the computation time needed to solve it. The new framework is compared to the old optimization framework in JModelica.o...

  13. ProteomeCommons.org collaborative annotation and project management resource integrated with the Tranche repository.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Hill, James A; Smith, Bryan E; Papoulias, Panagiotis G; Andrews, Philip C

    2010-06-01

    ProteomeCommons.org has implemented a resource that incorporates concepts of Web 2.0 social networking for collaborative annotation of data sets placed in the Tranche repository. The annotation tools are part of a project management resource that is effective for individual laboratories or large distributed groups. The creation of the resource was motivated by the need for a way to encourage annotation of data sets with high accuracy and compliance rates. The system is designed to respond to the dynamic nature of research in an easy-to-use fashion through the use of a dynamic data model that does not inhibit the innovation that is important for basic research. Placing the annotation tool within a project manager allows annotation to occur over the life of the project and provides the security and monitoring capabilities needed for large or small collaborative projects. The resource effectively supports distributed groups of investigators working on common data sets and is available immediately at https://ProteomeCommons.org . In addition, a silver compliant data resource based on ProteomeCommons.org has been developed for cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid (caBIG) to allow much broader access to the annotations describing data sets in the Tranche repository.

  15. PALEOMAGNETISM.ORG - AN Online Multi-Platform and Open Source Environment for Paleomagnetic Analysis

    Science.gov (United States)

    Koymans, M. R.; Langereis, C. G.; Pastor-Galán, D.; Van Hinsbergen, D. J. J.

    2015-12-01

    This contribution provides an overview of the features of Paleomagnetism.org, a new open-source online environment for paleomagnetic analysis that is supported by all modern browsers on multiple platforms. The core functionality of Paleomagnetism.org is written in JavaScript and maintains an interactive website in which paleomagnetic data can be interpreted, evaluated, visualized, and exported. Although being an online platform, the data processing is performed client-sided within the browser to respect the integrity of the data and users. In the interpretation portal, principle component analysis (Kirschvink et al., 1981) can be applied on visualized demagnetization data (Zijderveld, 1967). The interpreted directions and great circles can be combined using the iterative procedure of (McFadden and McElhinny, 1988). The resulting magnetic directions can be used in the statistics portal or exported as raw tabulated data and figures. The available tools in the statistics portal cover standard Fisher statistics for directional data and virtual geomagnetic poles (Fisher, 1953; Butler, 1992; Deenen et al., 2011). Other tools include the eigenvector approach foldtest (Tauxe and Watson, 1994), a bootstrapped reversal test (Tauxe et al., 2009), and the classical reversal test of (McFadden and McElhinny, 1990). An implementation exists for the detection and correction of inclination shallowing in sediments (Tauxe and Kent, 2004; Tauxe et al., 2008) and a module to visualize custom or default APWP reference frames (Torsvik et al., 2012; Kent and Irving, 2010; Besse and Courtillot, 2002) for continent-bearing plates. Paleomagnetism.org provides an integrated approach for researchers to export tabulated and visualized (e.g. equal area projections) paleomagnetic data. The portals construct a custom exportable file that can be shared with other researchers and included in public databases. With a publication, this custom file can be appended and would contain all data used in the

  16. Lo orgánico y lo funcional en psiquiatría

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Roberto Anselmo Ramos Valverde

    2014-08-01

    Full Text Available El desarrollo acelerado de las neurociencias en las últimas dos décadas permitió rescatar al cerebro de las sombras cartesianas donde se encontraba condenado, demostrándose que todo fenómeno psíquico, normal o morboso, tiene como sustento material a este órgano gestor de las funciones psíquicas. De esta manera quedó esclarecido que los trastornos mentales desencadenados por acontecimientos psicosociales estresantes actúan sobre el cerebro, provocando cambios neuroquímicos a nivel molecular responsables de la sintomatología que los tipifica, conjugándose etiopatogénicamente los factores biológicos, psicológicos y sociales gestores de estos desórdenes mentales. (1 Se distinguen en psiquiatría dos tipos de perfiles clínicos que los clásicos semiólogos clasificaron en síndromes orgánicos y funcionales; los primeros causados por alteraciones estructurales a nivel histopatológico en el cerebro o sus envolturas, nombradas afecciones orgánicas propiamente dichas, y síntomáticas cuando afectan el metabolismo cerebral a distancia; los segundos sustentan los cambios a nivel molecular, afectando la constitución química del cerebro por factores psicosociales, hereditarios y congénitos. (1 Los avances neurobiológicos esclarecen la multicausalidad de los trastornos mentales y el papel organogénico del cerebro, sustentado en su capacidad intrínseca de reflejar la realidad objetiva, que al perderse origina el espectro psicopatológico que hoy conocemos. (2 Algunos autores contemporáneos a partir del resurgimiento del protagonismo cerebral en la cristalización de los trastornos mentales, plantean que las fronteras entre lo orgánico y lo funcional se quebraron y que la enfermedad mental es orgánica en toda su extensión dada la obligada participación etiológica del cerebro. Soy del criterio que la actual omnipresencia cerebral en la generación de los procesos psicológicos, es sin duda, una virtud trascendente de la ciencia

  18. Leitura e diagnóstico do sintoma orgânico

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Eisenbruch Renata Volich

    2000-01-01

    Full Text Available A psicanálise sublinha a subjetividade do corpo, dos afetos que o habitam, particularmente a angústia. Angústia enquanto afeto que participa das flutuações do nosso corpo. Afeto que mobiliza o corpo. O diagnóstico de certas patologias orgânicas não se faz pelo scanner mas pelo discurso. Referir-se à linguagem ao tratar da psicopatologia e do tratamento psicanalítico é essencial pois o sintoma não é indiferente ao discurso, o sintoma pode ser abordado pelo discurso. Se escolhermos falar do corpo que é atingido pela patologia orgânica nos reportamos ao fato que o corpo vivente não existe sem as incidências do inconsciente sobre ele. Isso nos conduz não somente às coordenadas do gozo do corpo mas também do desejo inconsciente enquanto vetor que parte do Outro materno e pode irromper no real do corpo da criança. A patologia da criança nos permite verificar o que está em questão no infantil. O sintoma é também o elemento que para cada ser, na sua singularidade, se subtrai da homeostase que o simbólico pode oferecer. O mistério da doença orgânica indica que o modelo resultante da estatística, como demonstram manuais de diagnóstico, é um certo resultado de cálculos do qual os indivíduos que encontramos numa clínica psicanalitica se afastam. É nisso que consiste sua subjetividade. A infelicidade estatística de cada patologia nunca fornece a soma das tragédias individuais.

  9. Extending ArXiv.org to Achieve Open Peer Review and Publishing

    CERN Document Server

    Boldt, Axel

    2010-01-01

    Today's peer review process for scientific articles is unnecessarily opaque and offers few incentives to referees. Likewise, the publishing process is unnecessarily inefficient and its results are only rarely made freely available to the public. Here we outline a comparatively simple extension of arXiv.org, an online preprint archive widely used in the mathematical and physical sciences, that addresses both of these problems. Under the proposal, editors invite referees to write public and signed reviews to be attached to the posted preprints, and then elevate selected articles to "published" status.

    Bach, Paula M.; Carroll, John M.

    We describe two cases of open user experience (UX) design using the Firefox web browser and OpenOffice.org office suite as case studies. We analyze the social complexity of integrating UX practices into the two open source projects using activity awareness, a framework for understanding team performance in collective endeavors of significant scope, duration, and complexity. The facets of activity awareness are common ground, community of practice, social capital, and human development. We found that differences between the communities include different strategies for community building, UX status in the community, type of open UX design, and different ways to share information.

  16. Ultra-oxidized redox conditions in subduction mélanges? Decoupling between oxygen fugacity and oxygen availability in a metasomatic environment

    The manganese ore of Praborna (Italian Western Alps) is embedded within a metasedimentary sequence belonging to a subduction mélange equilibrated at high-pressure conditions (~2 GPa) during the Alpine orogenesis and record environmental conditions typical for a subducting slab setting. The pervasive veining of the ore and the growth of "pegmatoid" HP minerals suggest an open system with large fluid/rock ratio and a strong interaction with slab-derived fluids. This natural case provides an excellent natural laboratory for the study of the oxygen mobility in subducting oceanic slab mélanges at high-P, fluid-present conditions. The Mn-rich rocks in contact with the underlying sulphide- and magnetite-bearing metabasites, in textural and chemical equilibrium with the veins, contain braunite (Mn2+Mn3+6SiO12) + quartz + pyroxmangite (Mn2+SiO3), and minor hematite, omphacite, the epidote piemontite and spessartine-rich garnet. Similarly to Fe-bearing systems, Mn oxides and silicates can be regarded as natural redox-sensors, capable to monitor a process of fluid infiltration that could fix externally the intensive variable fO2 (or μO2). Sulphides are absent in these Mn-rich rocks, sulphates (barite, celestine) occurring instead together with As- and Sb oxides and silicates. On the basis of the observed assemblages, new thermodynamic calculations show that these mélange rocks are characterized by unrealistic ultra-oxidized states (ΔFMQ up to +12) if the chemical potential of oxygen (or the oxygen fugacity) is accounted for. However, if the molar quantity of oxygen in excess with reference to with reference to a system where all iron and manganese are considered to be ferrous, the ore appears only moderately oxidized, and comparable to typical subduction-slab mafic eclogites. Therefore, oxygen can be hardly considered a perfectly mobile component, even in the most favourable conditions. In the Earth's interior redox reactions take place mainly among solid oxides and

    Hippocampome.org is a comprehensive knowledge base of neuron types in the rodent hippocampal formation (dentate gyrus, CA3, CA2, CA1, subiculum, and entorhinal cortex). Although the hippocampal literature is remarkably information-rich, neuron properties are often reported with incompletely defined and notoriously inconsistent terminology, creating a formidable challenge for data integration. Our extensive literature mining and data reconciliation identified 122 neuron types based on neurotransmitter, axonal and dendritic patterns, synaptic specificity, electrophysiology, and molecular biomarkers. All ∼3700 annotated properties are individually supported by specific evidence (∼14,000 pieces) in peer-reviewed publications. Systematic analysis of this unprecedented amount of machine-readable information reveals novel correlations among neuron types and properties, the potential connectivity of the full hippocampal circuitry, and outstanding knowledge gaps. User-friendly browsing and online querying of Hippocampome.org may aid design and interpretation of both experiments and simulations. This powerful, simple, and extensible neuron classification endeavor is unique in its detail, utility, and completeness. PMID:26402459

    In some subjects with severe neurological diseases, a reduced immune response to seasonal influenza vaccine has been demonstrated. Patients with Williams or Cornelia de Lange syndrome frequently have abnormalities in neurodevelopment. This study has evaluated the immunogenicity, safety and tolerability of a monovalent 2009 pandemic influenza A/H1N1 MF59-adjuvanted vaccine in these subjects. Eighteen patients with Williams syndrome (ten males; mean age ± standard deviation [SD] 12.74 ± 4.49 years), 11 with Cornelia de Lange syndrome (six males; mean age 12.90 ± 4.85 years) and 30 age- and gender-matched healthy controls (16 males; mean age 12.49 ± 4.55 years), never vaccinated against influenza, received a dose of the vaccine between 1 and 30 November 2009. Four weeks later, the seroconversion rates in the three groups were between 72% and 80% and the seroprotection rates were 100%, with a similar increase in antibody levels. Two months later, most of the subjects remained seroconverted with no statistically significant difference between the groups, and about 94% of the patients with Williams syndrome, all of those with Cornelia de Lange syndrome and all of the healthy controls were still seroprotected. Safety and tolerability were very good, with no difference between the groups. None of the patients developed documented influenza during the study period. These results show that the immunogenicity, safety, and tolerability of a single dose of the monovalent 2009 pandemic influenza A/H1N1 MF59-adjuvanted vaccine in children and adolescents with Williams or Cornelia de Lange syndrome and moderate to severe mental disabilities is very good, and similar to that of healthy subjects.

    We used the K-Ar ages of clay-sized mineral grains to investigate the timing of activity on the Minami-Awa Fault, which is a fossil seismogenic fault along a subducting plate interface separating the coherent strata of the Shimanto accretionary complex to the north from the tectonic mélange to the south. The K-Ar ages from the matrix shale of the mélange range from 85 to 48 Ma and decrease with decreasing amount of detrital mica, indicating that they record a mixture of authigenic illite related to burial diagenesis and detrital mica. In contrast, the K-Ar ages of an ultracataclasite within the fault core are significantly younger, ranging from 29 to 23 Ma, and are unrelated to grain size and amount of detrital mica. This indicates that s Ar diffused completely from the ultracataclasite between 29 and 23 Ma, which postdates the formation of authigenic illite by at least several million years. The diffusion of 40Ar in the ultracataclasite was probably caused by frictional heating or high-temperature fluid migration that occurred when the fault was reactivated. The results indicate that seismogenic faults that separate tectonic mélange from coherent strata in accretionary complexes may slip, not only during accretion, but also long after accretion.

    Mutations in the potassium channel subunit KCNQ1 cause the human severe congenital deafness Jervell and Lange-Nielsen (JLN) syndrome. We applied a gene therapy approach in a mouse model of JLN syndrome (Kcnq1(-/-) mice) to prevent the development of deafness in the adult stage. A modified adeno-associated virus construct carrying a Kcnq1 expression cassette was injected postnatally (P0-P2) into the endolymph, which resulted in Kcnq1 expression in most cochlear marginal cells where native Kcnq1 is exclusively expressed. We also found that extensive ectopic virally mediated Kcnq1 transgene expression did not affect normal cochlear functions. Examination of cochlear morphology showed that the collapse of the Reissner's membrane and degeneration of hair cells (HCs) and cells in the spiral ganglia were corrected in Kcnq1(-/-) mice. Electrophysiological tests showed normal endocochlear potential in treated ears. In addition, auditory brainstem responses showed significant hearing preservation in the injected ears, ranging from 20 dB improvement to complete correction of the deafness phenotype. Our results demonstrate the first successful gene therapy treatment for gene defects specifically affecting the function of the stria vascularis, which is a major site affected by genetic mutations in inherited hearing loss.

    Full Text Available The present study aims to determine the levels of trihalomethanes (THMs in drinking water from different Spanish cities, and assess whether the temperature and rainfall influence them. Also assess the possible association of THM to mortality from stomach cancer and bladder. For this we took water samples from 49 cities in 2002, 2005 and 2006, which were analyzed by gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry obtaining THM levels. Climatic classifications were made according Koppën Lang and index the data of temperature and precipitation, and finally death rates from cancer of the stomach and bladder were standardized by sex and age. We found a decrease in the levels of THMs in Spain over time, managing to be below the limits established by Royal Decree 140/2003, but three cities studied. The results indicate that climatic classifications most of the Spanish territory has a temperate climate type - Wet. However it was found that different climatic zones exhibit an influence on the levels of THMs. Nor was significant correlation of the levels of THM with cancer of stomach and bladder, but is significant between stomach cancer and Köppen climate classification. It should continue with studies that include other variables allow clarifying and / or strengthening these results.

  10. Are seasonal calving dynamics forced by buttressing from ice mélange or undercutting by melting? Outcomes from full-Stokes simulations of Store Glacier, West Greenland

    Science.gov (United States)

    Todd, J.; Christoffersen, P.

    2014-12-01

    We use a full-Stokes 2-D model (Elmer/Ice) to investigate the flow and calving dynamics of Store Glacier, a fast-flowing outlet glacier in West Greenland. Based on a new, subgrid-scale implementation of the crevasse depth calving criterion, we perform two sets of simulations: one to identify the primary forcing mechanisms and another to constrain future stability. We find that the mixture of icebergs and sea ice, known as ice mélange or sikussak, is principally responsible for the observed seasonal advance of the ice front. On the other hand, the effect of submarine melting on the calving rate of Store Glacier appears to be limited. Sensitivity analysis demonstrates that the glacier's calving dynamics are sensitive to seasonal perturbation, but are stable on interannual timescales due to the strong topographic control on the flow regime. Our results shed light on the dynamics of calving glaciers and may help explain why neighbouring glaciers do not necessarily respond synchronously to changes in atmospheric and oceanic forcing.

    Full Text Available Ponderações sobre as emoções humanas apresentaram-se em toda a obra do bielorrusso L. S. Vigotski, desde sua juvenil crítica de arte. Nesse tópico, debateu a contribuição de vários autores: Freud, Claparède, Ribot, Lewin, Wundt. Entretanto, a perspectiva mais analisada por ele foi a teoria James-Lange. O objetivo deste artigo é discutir a extensa crítica que Vigotski dirigiu a ela no manuscrito “Utchenie ob Emotsiakh”, a qual se enquadrava numa ampla atitude teórico-metodológica do autor: a de compilar e relacionar o material fatual sem coordenação, expondo a luta de ideias filosóficas por detrás das psicológicas, de modo a abrir caminho para futuras investigações destinadas à superação do dualismo na psicologia. A partir dos principais fundamentos vigotskianos para futuros estudos, discutimos essa querela acerca das emoções, tema que o bielorrusso considerava a parte mais difícil e, possivelmente, a mais importante para o futuro da ciência psicológica.

    The Ormen Lange Onshore Processing Plant in Aukra municipality (Moere og Romsdal county) receives unprocessed gas and condensate from the Ormen Lange field in the Norwegian Sea. During processing of sales gas and condensate, the plant emits CO, Co2, Nox, CH4, NMVOC (including BTEX), SO2 and small amounts of heavy metals, as specified in the discharge permit issued by the Climate and Pollution Directorate. The plant started production in 2007, with A/S Norske Shell as operator. In general, emissions of nitrogen and sulphur-containing gasses may affect terrestrial ecosystems through acidification and fertilization of soil and vegetation. The emissions from the onshore plant are calculated to be below the current critical loads for the terrestrial nature types. However, the nitrogen background level in the area of influence is close to the critical loads for oligotrophic habitats. To be able to document any effects of emissions to air on terrestrial ecosystems, a monitoring program for vegetation and soil was established in 2008 in the area of influence from the Ormen Lange Onshore Plant. The monitoring is planned at regular intervals according to the same methods employed in 2008, with the first reanalysis in 2010. The benefits of the monitoring parameters will be continuously evaluated. Statnett has established a Reserve Power Plant with discharge permits of similar substances in the same area as the Ormen Lange Onshore Processing plant, and participates in an extended monitor program from 2010. In 2008 two monitoring sites were established, one with rather high deposition of nitrogen north of the plant within Gule-Stavmyran nature reserve in Fraena municipality (site Gulmyran) and one south of the plant on the island Gossa (site Aukra). Deposition values have been estimated by the Norwegian Institute for Air Research (NILU). Within each site integrated monitoring of the species composition of the vegetation, plant growth, and chemical content of plants and soil is

    VHub (short for VolcanoHub, and accessible at vhub.org) is an online platform for barrier free access to high end modeling and simulation and collaboration in research and training related to volcanoes, the hazards they pose, and risk mitigation. The underlying concept is to provide a platform, building upon the successful HUBzero software infrastructure (hubzero.org), that enables workers to collaborate online and to easily share information, modeling and analysis tools, and educational materials with colleagues around the globe. Collaboration occurs around several different points: (1) modeling and simulation; (2) data sharing; (3) education and training; (4) volcano observatories; and (5) project-specific groups. VHub promotes modeling and simulation in two ways: (1) some models can be implemented on VHub for online execution. VHub can provide a central warehouse for such models that should result in broader dissemination. VHub also provides a platform that supports the more complex CFD models by enabling the sharing of code development and problem-solving knowledge, benchmarking datasets, and the development of validation exercises. VHub also provides a platform for sharing of data and datasets. The VHub development team is implementing the iRODS data sharing middleware (see irods.org). iRODS allows a researcher to access data that are located at participating data sources around the world (a cloud of data) as if the data were housed in a single virtual database. Projects associated with VHub are also going to introduce the use of data driven workflow tools to support the use of multistage analysis processes where computing and data are integrated for model validation, hazard analysis etc. Audio-video recordings of seminars, PowerPoint slide sets, and educational simulations are all items that can be placed onto VHub for use by the community or by selected collaborators.

  18. Using Access Data for Paper Recommendations on ArXiv.org

    CERN Document Server

    Pohl, Stefan

    2007-01-01

    This thesis investigates in the use of access log data as a source of information for identifying related scientific papers. This is done for arXiv.org, the authority for publication of e-prints in several fields of physics. Compared to citation information, access logs have the advantage of being immediately available, without manual or automatic extraction of the citation graph. Because of that, a main focus is on the question, how far user behavior can serve as a replacement for explicit meta-data, which potentially might be expensive or completely unavailable. Therefore, we compare access, content, and citation-based measures of relatedness on different recommendation tasks. As a final result, an online recommendation system has been built that can help scientists to find further relevant literature, without having to search for them actively.

    White Dwarf Research Corporation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to scientific research and public education on topics relevant to white dwarf stars. It was founded in 1999 in Austin, Texas to help fulfill the need for an alternative research center where scarce funding dollars could be used more efficiently, and to provide a direct link between astronomers who study white dwarf stars and the general public. Due to its administrative simplicity, WDRC can facilitate the funding of multi-institutional and international collaborations, provide seamless grant portability, minimize overhead rates, and actively seek non-governmental funding sources. I describe the motivation for, and current status of, one of the long-term goals of WDRC: to establish a permanent endowment for the operation of the Whole Earth Telescope. I pay particular attention to fund-raising efforts through the website at http://WhiteDwarf.org/donate/

    Women diagnosed with DCIS face complex treatment decisions and often do so with inaccurate and incomplete understanding of the risks and benefits involved. Our objective was to create a tool to guide these decisions for both providers and patients. We developed a web-based decision aid designed to provide clinicians with tailored information about a patient’s recurrence risks and survival outcomes following different treatment strategies for DCIS. A theoretical framework, microsimulation model (Soeteman et al., J Natl Cancer 105:774–781, 2013) and best practices for web-based decision tools guided the development of the decision aid. The development process used semi-structured interviews and usability testing with key stakeholders, including a diverse group of multidisciplinary clinicians and a patient advocate. We developed onlineDeCISion.​org to include the following features that were rated as important by the stakeholders: (1) descriptions of each of the standard treatment options available; (2) visual projections of the likelihood of time-specific (10-year and lifetime) breast-preservation, recurrence, and survival outcomes; and (3) side-by-side comparisons of down-stream effects of each treatment choice. All clinicians reviewing the decision aid in usability testing were interested in using it in their clinical practice. The decision aid is available in a web-based format and is planned to be publicly available. To improve treatment decision making in patients with DCIS, we have developed a web-based decision aid onlineDeCISion.​org that conforms to best practices and that clinicians are interested in using in their clinics with patients to better inform treatment decisions.

    The Kenting Mélange located in the Central Range-Hengchun Peninsula accretionary prism shows a chaotic block-in-matrix structure. It was considered to be mainly of sedimentary origin (olistostromes) in the early 1990s, but tectonic origin gradually becomes a mainstream point of view when a large number of marine data has been collected since 1990s. According to lots of field observation, we find these chaotic deposits consist of a variety of blocks, up to km in size, of different lithologies such as chrome-spinel, gabbros, basalt and sandstones. These blocks float in a muddy matrix commonly showing a pervasive scaly foliation. Moreover, sausage-shaped sandstone, mud veins intruded in the exotic blocks under high pressure and heterogeneous hydrofracture in the surface of sandstones can demonstrate the Kenting Mélange was a tectonic origin rather than olistostromes. The Kenting Mélange can be considered as a mega-sheared fault zone about 1 km wide and 20 km long that approximately parallel to the north part of Manila trench, it is the character of tectonic mélange as fault rock of subduction plate boundary. In comparing the Kenting Mélange with the famous tectonic mélange in the world such as the Mugi Mélange in the Shimento Belt, Japan and the Bobonaro Mélange in the western Banda orogen, Indonesia, it is interesting to note the similarities. Moreover, seismic reflection profiles and foraminifera analysis studied before can also support the tectonic origin. In summary, a hypothesis can be proposed that the Kenting Mélange is a tectonic mélange as fault rock of subduction plate boundary at the front of the Taiwan accretionary prism, it formed mostly at the base of the accretionary prism by stratal detachment and fluid-assisted remobilization above a basal decollement, and then exposed through the splay fault system along with the involvement of the exotic blocks and the original continuous sedimentary strata block. The Kenting Mélange represents fault rock

    Full Text Available Abstract Background Long QT syndrome (LQTS is a cardiac disorder characterized by prolonged QT intervals on electrocardiograms (ECG, ventricular arrhythmias, and sudden death. Clinically, two inherited forms of LQTS have been defined: autosomal dominant LQTS or Romano-Ward syndrome (RWS not associated with deafness and autosomal recessive LQTS or Jervell and Lange-Nielsen syndrome (JLNS associated with deafness. Methods A Chinese family with both RWS and JLNS was identified. Family members were diagnosed based on the presence of a prolonged QT interval as seen on a 12-lead ECG and a medical history of syncope, palpitation, and deafness. Mutational studies in the KCNQ1 potassium channel gene were performed using direct DNA sequence analysis and restriction length polymorphism analysis. Results The proband in the Chinese family and her brother had previously been diagnosed with JLNS, and two other members were affected with RWS. The proband was also affected with atrial fibrillation. A single nucleotide substitution of C to T at nucleotide 965 of KCNQ1 was identified, and the mutation resulted in the substitution of a threonine residue at codon 322 by a methionine residue (T322M. The novel heterozygous T322M mutation was identified in two patients with RWS, one member with borderline QTc, and two normal family members. The two JLNS patients in the family carried the homozygous T322M mutation. The T322M mutation was not found in 200 Chinese normal controls. Conclusion Our results suggest that T322M is a novel mutation that caused RWS with high intrafamilial variability in the heterozygous carriers and typical JLNS in the homozygous carriers within this Chinese family. The T322M mutation is the first mutation identified for JLNS in the Chinese population.

    In this study, the frequency of mass-wasting events and past storminess has been reconstructed throughout the Holocene (11,500 cal yr BP to present) from lacustrine sediments in lake Trehynnvatnet (33 m a.s.l.), which is located in a glacially carved valley at Nykvåg on the outmost coast of western Langøya, Vesterålen, northern Norway. Sediment cores (∼2-5 m long) have been examined by use of high-resolution magnetic susceptibility and XRF-scanning as well as grain size and loss-on-ignition analysis. In total 35 episodic event layers have been identified throughout the Holocene. The majority of these events are characterized as discrete coarse-grained sediment layers followed by normal grading, and are related to past mass-wasting activity within the catchment. Periods with high mass-wasting activity are dated to 11,000-10,500, 5500-4500, 4000-3500, 3000-2500, 2000-1000 and 500-0 cal yr BP. The continuous input of sand grains (>250 μm) has been systematically investigated throughout the sediment cores. The sand grains are related to catchment samples from the sandy beach deposits in Sandvikbukta c. 750 m away in SW direction, and are suggested to indicate (niveo-) aeolian influx to the lake. The content of sand grains varies greatly throughout the record, although there is a clear increase in influx of sand during the last 2800 years. Periods with high aeolian influx are proposed to indicate increased storminess, which occurred between 1600 and 1550 (350-400 CE), 1400-1300 (450-550 CE), 750-550 (1200-1400 CE) and 250-20 cal yr BP (1700-1930 CE), which to some degree coincides with periods of increased storminess and winter precipitation recorded in other studies around the North Eastern Atlantic region.

  4. A Method to Estimate Friction Coefficient from Orientation Distribution of Meso-scale Faults: Applications to Faults in Forearc Sediment and Underplated Tectonic Mélange

    2015-12-01

    Friction coefficients along faults control the brittle strength of the earth's upper crust, although it is difficult to estimate them especially of ancient geological faults. Several previous studies tried to determine the friction coefficient of meso-scale faults from their orientation distribution as follows. Fault-slip analysis through stress tensor inversion techniques gives principal stress axes and a stress ratio, which allows us to draw a normalized Mohr's circle. Assuming that a faulting occurs when the ratio of shear stress to normal stress on it, i.e., the slip tendency, exceeds the friction coefficient, one can find a linear boundary of distribution of points corresponding to faults on Mohr diagram. The slope of the boundary (friction envelope) provides the friction coefficient. This method has a difficulty in graphically and manually recognizing the linear boundary of distribution on the Mohr diagram. This study automated the determination of friction coefficient by considering the fluctuations of fluid pressure and differential stress. These unknown factors are expected to make difference in density of points representing faults on the Mohr diagram. Since the density is controlled by the friction coefficient, we can optimize the friction coefficient so as to explain the density distribution. The method was applied to two examples of natural meso-scale faults. The first example is from the Pleistocene Kazusa Group, central Japan, which filled a forearc basin of the Sagami Trough. Stress inversion analysis showed WNW-ENE trending tensional stress with a low stress ratio. The friction coefficient was determined to be around 0.66, which is typical value for sandstone. The Second example is from an underplated tectonic mélange in the Cretaceous to Paleogene Shimanto accretionary complex in southwest Japan along the Nankai Trough. The stress condition was determined to be an axial compression perpendicular to the foliation of shale matrix. The friction

  6. Moléculas orgánicas obtenidas en simulaciones experimentales del medio interestelar.

    Muñoz-Caro, Guillermo Manuel

    Las nubes moleculares son regiones de formación de estrellas, con temperaturas cinéticas entre 10-50 K y densidades de 103-106 átomos cm-3. Su materia está formada por gas y polvo interestelar. Estas partículas de polvo están cubiertas por una fina capa de hielo, de unos 0.01 μm, que contiene H2O y a menudo CO, CO2, CH3OH y NH3. El hielo es presumiblemente irradiado por fotones ultravioleta y rayos cósmicos en las zonas poco profundas de las nubes moleculares y las regiones circunestelares. En un sistema de vacío, P ˜ 10-7 mbar, simulamos la deposición de hielo a partir de 10 K y la irradiación ultravioleta por medio de una lámpara de descarga de hidrógeno activada con microondas. La evolución del hielo se observa por medio de un espectrómetro infrarrojo. De este modo es posible determinar la composición del hielo observado en el medio interestelar y predecir la presencia de moléculas aún no detectadas en el espacio, que han sido producto del procesamiento del hielo en nuestros experimentos. También es posible calentar el sistema hasta temperatura ambiente para sublimar el hielo depositado. Cuando el hielo ha sido previamente irradiado, se observa un residuo compuesto por moléculas orgánicas complejas, algunas prebióticas, como varios ácidos carboxílicos, aminas, amidas, ésteres y en menor proporción moléculas heterocíclicas y aminoácidos. Algunas de estas moléculas podrían detectarse en estado gaseoso por medio de observaciones milimétricas y de radio. También podrían estar presentes en el polvo cometario, cuyo análisis químico está planeado por las misiones Stardust y Rosetta. Mientras tanto, nuestro grupo está llevando a cabo el análisis de partículas de polvo interplanetario (IDPs), algunas de las cuales pueden ser de origen cometario. Al igual que ocurre con los productos obtenidos por irradiación del hielo en nuestros experimentos, algunas IDPs son ricas en material orgánico que contiene oxígeno.

    Traditional continuing medical education (CME) depended primarily on periodic courses and conferences. The cost-effectiveness of these courses has not been established, and often the content is not tailored to best meet the needs of the students. Internet training has the potential to accomplish these goals. Over the last 10 years, we have developed a Web site entitled "Orthochina.org," based upon the wiki concept, which uses an interactive, case-based format. We describe the development of online case discussions, and various technical and administrative requirements. As of December 31, 2007, there were 33,984 registered users, 9,759 of which passed the confirmation procedures. In 2007, an average of 211 registrants visited daily. The average number of first page clicks was 4,248 per day, and the average number of posts was 70 per day. All cases submitted for discussion include the patient's complaint, physical examination findings, and relevant images based on specific criteria for case discussion. The case discussions develop well professionally. No spam posting or unauthorized personal advertisement is permitted. In conclusion, online academic discussions proceed well when the orthopaedic surgeons who participate have established their identities. PMID:18685911

    2006-12-01

    The media and public policy debate suffer from an extreme form of Attention Deficit Disorder. Compared to the daily news cycle, the progress of scientific debate within the peer-reviewed literature is extremely slow. This puts serious scientists who work in relatively politicised fields (global warming, evolution, stem cell research and the like) at a huge disadvantage when it comes to having their voices heard above the noise. Since Dec 2004, RealClimate.org has been operating as a group blog (a web-based journal) run by climate scientists for interested members of the public and the media. The aim has been to provide the context for climate-related news stories that is often missing in the mainstream media and to explain the basics of our field to the often confused, but curious, members of the public. In particular, it has provided rapid reaction to mis-uses and abuses of scientific results by policy advocates across the spectrum. Reactions to the blog have been overwhelmingly (but not uniformly) positive from both professionals in the media, the scientific community and the public. It has been described as the 'go-to site' for climate science in the New York Times, and received a Scientific American Science and Technology Web award in 2005. I will discuss what impacts RealClimate may have had and the pluses and minuses of trying to reach the public through this kind of outlet.

    Information about disease management in winter wheat (Triticum aestiva) in eight European countries was collated and analysed by scientists and extension workers within the European Network for the Durable Exploitation of Crop Protection Strategies (ENDURE). This included information about speciifc disease thresholds, decision support systems, host varieties, disease prevalence and pathogen virulence. Major differences in disease prevalence and economic importance were observed. Septoria tritici blotch (Mycosphaerella graminicola) was recognized as the most yield reducing disease in countries with intensive wheat production, but also rust diseases (Puccinia striiformis andPuccinia triticina), powdery mildew (Blumeria graminis) and Fusarium head blight (Fusarium spp.) were seen as serious disease problems. Examples of current integrated pest management (IPM) strategies in different countries have been reported. Disease management and fungicide use patterns showed major differences, with an average input equivalent to 2.3 full dose rates (TFI) in the UK and a TFI of 0.6 in Denmark. These differences are most likely due to a combination of different cropping systems, climatic differences, disease prevalence, and socio-economic factors. The web based information platform www.eurowheat.org was used for dissemination of information and results includinginformation on control thresholds, cultural practices which can inlfuence disease attack, fungicide efifcacy, fungicide resistance, and pathogen virulence, which are all elements supporting IPM for disease control in wheat. The platform is open to all users. The target groups of EuroWheat information are researchers, advisors, breeders, and similar partners dealing with disease management in wheat.

    Full Text Available Agricultural production systems have to combine management practices in order to sustain soil's profitability and quality. Organic farming is gaining worldwide acceptance and has been expanding at an annual rate of 20% in the last decade, accounting for over 24 million hectares worldwide. Organic practices avoid applications of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, rely on organic inputs and recycling for nutrient supply, and emphasize cropping system design and biological processes for pest management, as defined by organic farming regulation in the world. In comparison with conventional farming, organic farming has potential benefits in improving food quality and safety. Plant production in organic farming mainly depends on nutrient release as a function of mineralization processes in soils. The build-up of a large and active soil microbial biomass is important pool of accessible nutrients, therefore, is an important priority in organic farming. In organic farming, there is positive effect of quantity and quality of inputs of organic residues on soil microbial biomass. In this way, the organic systems are extremely important for the increase of the soil fertility and the maintenance of the environmental sustainability.A produção agrícola tem de combinar práticas para prover a sustentabilidade do solo. A agricultura orgânica está ganhando aceitação mundial e cresce à taxa anual de 20% na última década, contabilizando mais de 24 milhões de hectares. As práticas orgânicas evitam o uso de fertilizantes sintéticos e pesticidas, enfatiza a aplicação de matéria orgânica, como também a reciclagem de nutrientes e de processos biológicos para manejo de pragas, através das regras dos sistemas orgânicos no mundo. Em comparação com a agricultura convencional, os sistemas orgânicos têm potencial de melhorar a qualidade e a segurança dos alimentos. A produção das plantas no sistema orgânico depende da liberação de nutrientes

    The National Wind Erosion Research Network was established in 2014 as a collaborative effort led by the USDA Agricultural Research Service and Natural Resources Conservation Service, and USDI Bureau of Land Management, to address the need for standardized measurements of wind erosion and its controlling factors. Data will be used to support model development and identification of improved land management strategies that have global applications. By applying standard methods, the Network will overcome the common challenge of synthesizing independent studies to assess local-to-national scale wind erosion and dust emission. Twelve intensively instrumented Network sites will be operational by spring 2016, providing high-resolution measurements of aeolian sediment transport rates, meteorological conditions and soil and vegetation properties. These initial sites are located across rangelands and croplands in New Mexico, Texas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Colorado, Utah, North Dakota, Idaho and Washington. A primary objective of the Network is to facilitate collaboration among Network sites and the wider research community to address basic research questions about aeolian processes, model development, and evaluate practical management options. In support of Network activities, winderosionnetwork.org was developed to serve as a Network data portal, and provide online information about the National Wind Erosion Research Network including protocols and results. The website provides a comprehensive resource for scientists and managers interested in engaging with the Network and accessing Network products. The Network provides exciting opportunities to engage in a national long-term wind erosion research program that promises significant impact for our understanding and ability to predict and evaluate aeolian processes across land cover types and land use systems.

    The present study was designed to find out whether the synthetic pentasaccharide SR 90107A/Org 31540, which is presently being evaluated in clinical trials as an antithrombotic agent, influences lipoprotein metabolism in rats as determined by plasma triglyceride (TG) lipase activity. A comparison with three clinically used sulphated polysaccharides-unfractionated heparin (UFH), low molecular weight heparin (LMWH) and pentosan polysulphate (PPS)- was performed. UFH evoked a dose-dependent increase in plasma TG lipase activity which plateaued at doses > or = 1 mg/kg i.v.. PPS and LMWH demonstrated a lower efficacy than heparin at 0.3 and 1 mg/kg i.v., but the maximum lipase releasing effect at 3 mg/kg i.v. was identical for UFH, PPS and LMWH. SR 90107A/Org 31540 did not release TG lipase activity at single i.v. doses up to 3 mg/kg. Repeated-dose experiments with SR 90107A/Org 31540 (1 mg/kg s.c. for 9 days) revealed no influence on the lipase releasing effect of UFH (1 mg/kg i.v. on day 10). These results demonstrate that SR 90107A/Org 31540 does not influence lipid metabolism in rats through lipase release, suggesting that SR 90107A/Org 31540 may offer an advantage over UFH and LMWH in clinical situations where an anticoagulant/antithrombotic effect is desired, but both an increase in plasma free fatty acids and atherogenic alterations of lipoprotein metabolism are considered harmful.

    The StarDate Black Hole Encyclopedia website was developed over the past seven years to provide an extensive but easy-to-read resource for the public and students. A Spanish-language version, Enciclopedia de agujeros negros, is also available at blackholes.radiouniverso.org. Evaluation shows that the sites are used by the public, students, and astronomy professionals, and the site is among the top references in most web searches for individual black holes. The site comprises seven major subsections: Basics, Directory, Research, History, Pop Culture, News, and Resources. The Basics section introduces black holes, explains how they are discovered and studied, and covers their basis in the theory of gravity. This section also includes a six-minute video introduction, “Black Holes: Stranger than Fiction.” The Directory section contains extensive descriptions of more than 80 well-known stellar, intermediate, and supermassive black holes as well as images and vital statistics of each. The Research section takes a look at three NSF-funded projects, including the work of Andrea Ghez, Karl Gebhardt and Jenny Greene, and the LIGO project. The History section provides a timeline of black holes from Isaac Newton to the present. Some of the best and worst roles played by black holes in films, TV shows, and books are included in the Pop Culture section (and pop culture references and images are sprinkled through the rest of the site). An archive of news reports about black holes is available in the News section, which provides links to the original stories or press releases. And the Resources section offers FAQs, articles from StarDate magazine and radio programs, activities for students that are tied to national standards, a glossary, and a reading list of books and websites. We have conducted both quantitative and qualitative evaluation on the black hole websites. This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. 0935841. Any

  3. Analysis of AntarcticGlaciers.org: a website used to communicate glaciology by an academic (Invited)

    Science.gov (United States)

    Davies, B. J.

    2013-12-01

    Research into polar science is driven by humanity's pressing concerns about environmental issues and climate change. The effective communication of this science is vital for it to realise its societal and political relevance. However, effective science communication has proved challenging for many reasons, including biased media presentation, lack of time and funds, lack of training, fear of attack by denialists, and poor career credit given for outreach and education work. A key question is how time-poor researchers, whilst working in full-time academic positions, can implement effective outreach strategies with little budget and few resources, that satisfies not only their personal desire to publicise and communicate their work, but also the demands of their research funder. Science websites and blogs offer one possibility, but there is little critical evaluation as to their effectiveness. The aim of this work is to evaluate a website and social medial tools written by an academic that was established to communicate peer-reviewed science. The goal of www.AntarcticGlaciers.org is to communicate key scientific concepts and to deliver new research findings via a professional, attractive, website and blog, supported by a strong social media presence. The objectives were to 1) to clearly explain and illustrate key concepts in glaciology as well as the latest developments in Antarctic research; 2) to be well aligned with national school curriculums, and to support school and university learning; 3) to include interactive features and social networking tools to encourage engagement and discourse; 4) to be aware of and well aligned with the website's intended audience. One year after website launch, the website was evaluated using a combination of an online feedback form, Google Analytics and analysis of Twitter followers. Our analysis shows that just one year after launch the website is a useful information resource, with some aspects that do challenge the knowledge

  4. OrgConv: detection of gene conversion using consensus sequences and its application in plant mitochondrial and chloroplast homologs

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Hao Weilong

    2010-03-01

    Full Text Available Abstract Background The ancestry of mitochondria and chloroplasts traces back to separate endosymbioses of once free-living bacteria. The highly reduced genomes of these two organelles therefore contain very distant homologs that only recently have been shown to recombine inside the mitochondrial genome. Detection of gene conversion between mitochondrial and chloroplast homologs was previously impossible due to the lack of suitable computer programs. Recently, I developed a novel method and have, for the first time, discovered recurrent gene conversion between chloroplast mitochondrial genes. The method will further our understanding of plant organellar genome evolution and help identify and remove gene regions with incongruent phylogenetic signals for several genes widely used in plant systematics. Here, I implement such a method that is available in a user friendly web interface. Results OrgConv (Organellar Conversion is a computer package developed for detection of gene conversion between mitochondrial and chloroplast homologous genes. OrgConv is available in two forms; source code can be installed and run on a Linux platform and a web interface is available on multiple operating systems. The input files of the feature program are two multiple sequence alignments from different organellar compartments in FASTA format. The program compares every examined sequence against the consensus sequence of each sequence alignment rather than exhaustively examining every possible combination. Making use of consensus sequences significantly reduces the number of comparisons and therefore reduces overall computational time, which allows for analysis of very large datasets. Most importantly, with the significantly reduced number of comparisons, the statistical power remains high in the face of correction for multiple tests. Conclusions Both the source code and the web interface of OrgConv are available for free from the OrgConv website http

  5. Dynamics and Preservation Potential of Subduction Complexes in Continental Sutures: A Case Study from the Sedimentary-Marix Mélange of the Indus-Yarlung Suture Zone in Southern Tibet

    Science.gov (United States)

    2015-12-01

    Intra-continental sutures are the geologic record of ancient subduction zones. Subduction complexes are a useful record of ancient continental collisions because they preserve sediments and/or blocks from units which have since eroded and are the first point of contact during collision. The India-Asia collision is one of the most-studied collisional orogens, but how much of the original subduction complex is preserved and what we can determine about the dynamics of the ancient subduction zone along the southern margin of Asia is poorly understood. Compared to other subduction complexes around the world, the complex preserved in the Indus Yarlung Suture Zone (IYSZ) of southern Tibet is anomalous. Blueschist facies metamorphism, a prominent mineral assemblage along intra-continental suture zones, is common in the northwest Himalaya, but not found along the central segment of the IYSZ. Most of the subduction complex is greenschist facies, inconsistent with the geotherm for a subduction zone. We present a metamorphic history for the greenschist facies rocks to reconcile this contradiction. A deep forearc basin (~5-8 km) developed during the Cretaceous, requiring an accretionary subduction zone, a topographic or structural outer forearc high behind which to trap sediment, and/or basal subduction erosion. The preserved subduction complex is almost entirely tectonic sedimentary-matrix mélange with minor outcrops of overlying turbidites. We present evidence from detrital zircon U-Pb geochronology of sandstones that indicate along-strike variability in the provenance of the sedimentary-matrix mélange. For example, both lower and upper plate material are present near the town of Ngamring, while regions along-strike to the west contain little to no upper plate material. The blocks in the sedimentary-matrix mélange are well-mixed throughout kilometers of exposed width.

    Full Text Available Introducción: El nitrógeno es el nutriente más demandado por los árboles de nogal pecanero, por lo que es considerado un factor limitante para su desarrollo, producción y calidad de la nuez. Sin embargo, ante el aumento en el precio de los fertilizantes y sus efectos adversos en el ambiente, actualmente es más evidente la necesidad de aplicar nutrientes de manera sustentable. Una alternativa para disminuir la aplicación de fertilizantes nitrogenados inorgánicos en nogal pecanero, es complementarlo con composta, humus de lombriz, lixiviado de lombriz y microorganismos potenciadores de la fertilidad del suelo, como son las micorrizas, entre otros. Por lo que el objetivo del estudio fue reducir la aplicación de nitrógeno inorgánico al suelo mediante la adición de enmiendas orgánicas y microorganismos potenciadores de la fertilidad del suelo sin afectar producción ni calidad. Método: El estudio se realizó en el municipio de Aldama, Chihuahua, durante los ciclos 2010-2012 en árboles ‘Western Schley’, se utilizó una estructura Taguchi L16 para cuatro factores y cuatro niveles para cada factor: nitrógeno 330, 220, 110 y 0 kg ha-1; composta 0, 2.5, 5.0, 7.5 t ha-1; humus de lombriz (OptiHumusMR 0, 1.5, 3.0, 4.5 t ha-1 y micorrizas (Sehumic-VamMR 0, 7.5, 15.0, 22.5 g pulg-1 de tronco. Se determinó el contenido de materia orgánica y nitratos en el suelo, producción y calidad de la nuez, los cuales se analizaron por superficie de respuesta. Resultados: A pesar de que para producir 2.9 t ha-1 se logró reducir la aplicación de nitrógeno, este nivel no permitió obtener una buena calidad de la nuez ni alcanzar un contenido adecuado de materia orgánica y nitratos en suelo. Para un rendimiento de 2.9 t ha-1 con 153 nueces kg-1 y 59.4% de nuez comestible, 1.06% de materia orgánica y 183 ppm de nitratos en suelo se requirieron 305 kg de N, 6600 kg de composta, 3500 kg de humus de lombriz y 18 g de micorrizas por pulg-1 de tronco

    Based on the historical data that are extracted from a time series of satellite images, SLEUTH has been employed to simulate the urban growth and land use evolution in Jing-Jin-Lang area. To make SLEUTH applicable to Jing-Jin-Lang area,a number of calibrations should be done for the model. After calibrations,SLEUTH is used for "backcasting" of urban extent and land use/cover change with spatiotemporal interpolation during 1 985 to 2008.The simulated results are analyzed with historical data. On this basis, SLEUTH used as a forecasting tool to simulate the process of LUCC during 2009 to 2020 respectively. Using SLEUTH model, urban growth tendency in future was forecasted. The results indicated that, margin growth occupied dominant station relative to other growth method. In future, it was going to grow outward continually taking old urban area as the center all the same. At the same time, it was traffic system nowadays that was going to have an important influence to urban development in Jing-Jin-Lang area. At last, through using qualitative and quantitative method,urban expansion driving factors were discussed. Natural environment, national macroscopic policy regulation,traffic, development zone construction and special factors were important to urban growth in Jing-Jin-Lang area.The principal component analysis showed that, population-culture-economy factor and economy factor and economy-environment factor was respectively the first principal component to influence urban growth in Beijing and Tianjin and Langfang.%利用遥感和CIS技术获取历史数据,采用SLEUTH模型,对京津廊坊地区城市增长和土地利用演化进行模拟.模拟过程中,通过获取模型对于城市土地利用演化模拟的最佳模型参数系列.实现SLEUTH模型的本地化,重建了研究区1985-2008年城市土地利用历史动态演化过程,并模拟其未来动态扩展趋势,为研究区城市发展和城市规划提供科学依据.最后.通过对社会经济驱

    Full Text Available Le but de cet article est de discuter quelques expériences de base concernant le mélange dans les écoulements turbulents qui sont susceptibles de fournir des éléments de compréhension concernant les principaux mécanismes gouvernant les processus de mélange turbulent. La littérature ne fournit en fait qu'un petit nombre de telles situations physiques fondamentales, en partant des plus simples qui concernent le mélange dans des situations statistiquement homogènes et isotropes, pour aller vers des situations complexes comme les couches de mélange qui, au contraire, sont inhomogènes et anisotropes. Ces résultats expérimentaux permettent de dresser un certain nombre de conclusions concernant des mécanismes moyens clés, comme le transfert des grandes vers les petites échelles du champ de concentration, et sur quelques lois d'échelles que l'on peut déduire de leur compréhension. Néanmoins, le problème de la topologie des plus fines échelles du champ de concentration reste ouvert, et particulièrement dans les liquides où le nombre de Schmidt est élevé et, en conséquence, où ces échelles sont d'autant plus faibles. Seuls quelques travaux récents utilisant les techniques d'analyse d'images donnent des réponses à cette question importante pour la modélisation du processus de diffusion moléculaire. Les différents résultats des théories de la turbulence nécessaires à la discussion sont rappelés sans démonstration mais en insistant sur le sens physique des relations qui les traduisent. The aim of this paper is to discuss some basic experiments on mixing by turbulent flows, which give a clear understanding of the main mechanisms entering into the mixing process. A very small number of such fundamental physical situations may be found in the literature, from the simplest one concerning mixing in homogeneous turbulence up to more complex situations such as those encountered in mixing layers, which are strongly

    Jadeitites are excellent rock types for obtaining information on fluid composition in subduction zones. Recent studies indicate that many jadeitites appear to have formed by direct precipitation from a fluid [1]. In almost all localities worldwide (see e.g. Harlow and Sorensen, 2005) jadeitites are found either as allochthonous blocks or as veins and lenses directly within the serpentinite country rock of serpentinite mélanges. In the Rio San Juan Complex on the other hand jadeitite also frequently occurs as veins (cm to some dm in thickness) within lawsonite-blueschist blocks [2,3,4] entrained in the serpentinite mélange. The mélange of the Rio San Juan Complex also contains blocks (m to 10m scale) of different metamorphic grade and lithology (eclogites, blueschists, orthogneisses and very low grade rocks) showing contrasting but interrelated P-T-t paths. The consistency of such interrelated P-T-t paths with those obtained by numerical models led Krebs et al. [5] to interpret the mélange of the Rio San Juan Complex as a former subduction channel. So far, two types of jadeitite have been found in the blueschist blocks: either as discordant veins cutting the foliation, or as concordant layers. In some cases the jadeitites contain large amounts of lawsonite and should then better be called jadeite-lawsonite rocks. The latter rock type may form a network of thin (nephrite and jadeitite) and serpentinite: Metasomatic connections.

    Full Text Available El trastorno orgánico de la personalidad supone una alteración significativa de las formas habituales del comportamiento premórbido, afectando particularmente a la expresión de las emociones, necesidades e impulsos. Se presenta el caso de una mujer de 49 años de edad que, tras padecer un infarto cerebral, presentó una transformación de su personalidad y de sus valores previos. Anteriormente era una persona con múltiples miedos, cuidadosa, metódica en su vida diaria. Tras el infarto comenzó a presentar conductas de provocación y una mayor desinhibición e impulsividad, menor tolerancia a la frustración, así como mínima capacidad de planificación y resolución de problemas. Además, fue incapaz de conservar ningún trabajo y perdió las relaciones sociales. Se realizaron estudios de imagen (tomografía computarizada (TC y resonancia magnética (RM, electroencefalograma (EEG y una evaluación neuropsicológica. Los resultados obtenidos son compatibles con un trastorno orgánico de la personalidad subtipo desinhibido, caracterizado clínicamente por la tendencia a la labilidad emocional, la desinhibición conductual y la falta de control de impulsos. El trastorno orgánico de la personalidad es una afectación crónica e irreversible que está influyendo en la capacidad de autogobierno de la paciente, y por ello deben valorarse los aspectos psiquiátrico-forenses pertinentes.

    Full Text Available Sous haute pression, les propriétés thermodynamiques et les équilibres de phase sont généralement évalués en appliquant la même équation d'état aux phases en présence. Les règles de mélange déterminent la variation des paramètres avec la composition. L'extension de ces méthodes à des systèmes polaires exige une révision de ces règles. Une seconde difficulté se présente si on applique une équation d'état contenant plus de deux paramètres. Les relations existant entre les grandeurs d'excès et les règles de mélange apportent une solution aux problèmes ainsi définis. Les exemples proposés portent sur la prédiction des équilibres de phase de systèmes ternaires, l'application du concept de contributions de groupes et l'utilisation d'une équation d'état contenant quatre paramètres. Under high pressure, thermodynamic properties and phase equilibria are generally evaluated by applying the same equation of state to the phases present. Mixing rules determine how parameters vary with the composition. The extension of such methods to polar systems requires these rules to be revised. A second difficulty arises if an equation of state containing more than two parameters is used. The relations existing between excess functions and mixing rules provide a solution to the problems thus defined. The examples proposed concern the predicting of phase equilibria for ternary systems, the application of the concept of group contributions and the use of an equation of state containing four parameters.

    Petrological and geochronological data of high pressure (HP) rocks from Cuba and Dominican Republic indicate continuous subduction in the northern edge of the Caribbean since ca. 120 Ma. However, expected correlation of the associated subduction zone towards the west in Guatemala is uncertain, for similar HP rocks in this region have metamorphic ages as old as 150 Ma. In this contribution we present new geochemical and U-Pb/Lu-Hf ages of HP rocks from the Escambray terrane and the central Cuba serpentinite mélange that allow geodynamic correlations between the Greater Antilles and Guatemala during the early and late Cretaceous. The Escambray composite terrane constitutes a metamorphic accretionary complex containing oceanic and platform-derived metasedimentary and metaigneous rocks that were tectonically assembled in the Caribbean subduction environment during the latest Cretaceous. The complex crops out as two domes, named Trinidad to the west and Sancti Spiritus to the east, forming a tectonic window below the arc-related Mabujina amphibolite complex and the allochthonous Cretaceous volcanic arc terrane. The latter overrides the central Cuba mélange, which contains low-pressure ophiolitic blocks and HP blocks of eclogite, garnet amphibolite and blueschist facies rocks within a serpentinitic matrix. This serpentinite mélange and similar melange bodies within the Escambray complex have been interpreted as fragments of the Caribbean subduction channel. The studied HP samples are of basaltic composition, poor in K2O (<0.34 wt %) and Rb (< 3.05 ppm), relatively rich in Ta (0.07-0.77 ppm) and Hf (0.74-4.17 ppm), and rich in Nb (0.68- 13.53 ppm). Most samples show a REE chondrite-normalised patterns characterized by a subtle LREE depletion, except a few samples which are characterized by slight enrichment in LREE. Based on their distinctive trace-element contents, most of the basaltic protholiths of the samples are identified as E- to N-MORB signature. Some samples

    Full Text Available The Tephra2 numerical model for tephra fallout from explosive volcanic eruptions is specifically designed to enable students to probe ideas in model literacy, including code validation and verification, the role of simplifying assumptions, and the concepts of uncertainty and forecasting. This numerical model is implemented on the VHub.org website, a venture in cyberinfrastructure that brings together volcanological models and educational materials. The VHub.org resource provides students with the ability to explore and execute sophisticated numerical models like Tephra2. We present a strategy for using this model to introduce university students to key concepts in the use and evaluation of Tephra2 for probabilistic forecasting of volcanic hazards. Through this critical examination students are encouraged to develop a deeper understanding of the applicability and limitations of hazard models. Although the model and applications are intended for use in both introductory and advanced geoscience courses, they could easily be adapted to work in other disciplines, such as astronomy, physics, computational methods, data analysis, or computer science.

Addition of the glycine transporter type-1 inhibitors NFPS and Org-24461 reversed the inhibitory effect of 7-chlorokynurenic acid on N-methyl-d-aspartate-evoked spreading depression. The glycine uptake inhibitory activity of Org-24461, NFPS, and some newly synthesized analogs of NFPS was determined in CHO cells stably expressing human glycine transporter type-1b isoform. Compounds, which failed to inhibit glycine transporter type-1, also did not have effect on retinal spreading depression. These experiments indicate that the spreading depression model in chicken retina is a useful in vitro test to determine activity of glycine transporter type-1 inhibitors. In addition, our data serve further evidence for the role of glycine transporter type-1 in retinal neurotransmission and light processing.

Con el objetivo de modelar la variación del COS con la profundidad, se analizó una base de datos de COS de perfiles de suelos distribuidos en todo México (base de datos INEGI-COLPOS. Esta base se depuró usando diferentes restricciones congruentes con el objetivo de desarrollar modelos matemáticos de la distribución del carbono con la profundidad (z. Los resultados de los ajustes estadísticos mostraron que modelo logarítmico, COS(z=a-b ln(z, resultó adecuado para lo planteado, por lo que se procedió a su síntesis. Se usó la propiedad de que un conjunto de rectas que se intersectan en un punto común, sus parámetros generan una línea recta. Con base en ella se desarrolló un esquema para estimar el carbono orgánico inerte (COI del espacio b-a del modelo logarítmico. Adicionalmente, para realizar estimaciones del COS a profundidad (hasta su valor máximo usando sólo el valor del COS de 0 a 30 cm, se desarrolló un método para realizar estas estimaciones a partir de parámetros asociados a los ecosistemas y tipos de vegetación. Los resultados de los ejercicios realizados para estimar el COI y el carbono orgánico a profundidad en los suelo usando sólo el COS 30 cm muestran ser adecuados y pueden ser implementados en forma operativa.

O objetivo deste trabalho foi verificar a estabilidade das relações entre caracteres fenotípicos a partir de populações de cenoura cultivadas em sistemas de produção orgânico e convencional. Os experimentos foram conduzidos na Embrapa Hortaliças, DF. Duas populações de cenoura em fase de melhoramento e quatro cultivares comerciais foram plantados em novembro de 2007 no campo nos dois sistemas de produção, com delineamento de blocos casualizados com quatro repetições e parcelas de 1 m², com 100 plantas por parcela. Aos 90 dias após o semeio, 20 raízes por parcela foram colhidas e avaliadas para caracteres fenotípicos. Foi realizada análise de variância com determinação da interação entre tratamentos e sistemas de produção, correlações fenotípicas, análise de trilha e os ganhos com as seleções direta e correlacionada. Observouse que a quase totalidade das correlações medianas acima de 0,30, bem como os maiores efeitos diretos da análise de trilha e os maiores ganhos diretos e indiretos estimados, foi repetida nos dois sistemas, indicando que eles foram muito semelhantes na expressão da relação entre os caracteres. Assim, o melhoramento visando aos caracteres avaliados não precisa ser realizado em ambas as áreas de cultivos orgânico e convencional.

  3. Org 214007-0: a novel non-steroidal selective glucocorticoid receptor modulator with full anti-inflammatory properties and improved therapeutic index.

    Marie-José C van Lierop

    Full Text Available Glucocorticoids (GCs such as prednisolone are potent immunosuppressive drugs but suffer from severe adverse effects, including the induction of insulin resistance. Therefore, development of so-called Selective Glucocorticoid Receptor Modulators (SGRM is highly desirable. Here we describe a non-steroidal Glucocorticoid Receptor (GR-selective compound (Org 214007-0 with a binding affinity to GR similar to that of prednisolone. Structural modelling of the GR-Org 214007-0 binding site shows disturbance of the loop between helix 11 and helix 12 of GR, confirmed by partial recruitment of the TIF2-3 peptide. Using various cell lines and primary human cells, we show here that Org 214007-0 acts as a partial GC agonist, since it repressed inflammatory genes and was less effective in induction of metabolic genes. More importantly, in vivo studies in mice indicated that Org 214007-0 retained full efficacy in acute inflammation models as well as in a chronic collagen-induced arthritis (CIA model. Gene expression profiling of muscle tissue derived from arthritic mice showed a partial activity of Org 214007-0 at an equi-efficacious dosage of prednisolone, with an increased ratio in repression versus induction of genes. Finally, in mice Org 214007-0 did not induce elevated fasting glucose nor the shift in glucose/glycogen balance in the liver seen with an equi-efficacious dose of prednisolone. All together, our data demonstrate that Org 214007-0 is a novel SGRMs with an improved therapeutic index compared to prednisolone. This class of SGRMs can contribute to effective anti-inflammatory therapy with a lower risk for metabolic side effects.

    Full Text Available Chromium and its compounds give toxic and/or hazardous characteristics to all those industrial wastes, solids or liquids, that contain them. Organic solvent extraction is a technique that allows the recovery of chromium contained in these residues. In this work the extraction of Cr(III from aqueous solutions with solutions of a cationic reactive (DEHPA in kerosene is studied. In the same way the stripping process was studied. It has been found that Cr(III and DEHPA react in a 1/1 molar ratio, being the extraction kinetics very fast. Final aqueous phase final pH influence extraction yield, so that it is necessary to work with pH values between 3 and 4. It must be added a modifier (isodecanol to the organic phase to avoid the formation of a third phase in the stripping process. The concentration of isodecanol has to be higher than 15 %, so the organic phase used was a solution of 12.5 % v/v DEHPA in kerosene and 20 % v/v isodecanol. The stripping process is slow and must be carried out in an oxidant alkalyne medium, thus an aqueous solution of NaOH and H2O2 was used. An increase in the concentration of NaOH and H2O2 leads to an increase in the stripping yield initially, and becomes stable when concentrations of NaOH and H2O2 used are higher than 0.45 N and 4 % v/v respectively.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Chang-Li Zeng

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: Information on polymorphic DNA in organelle genomes is essential for evolutionary and ecological studies. However, it is challenging to perform high-throughput investigations of chloroplast and mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms. In recent years, EcoTILLING stands out as one of the most universal, low-cost, and high-throughput reverse genetic methods, and the identification of natural genetic variants can provide much information about gene function, association mapping and linkage disequilibrium analysis and species evolution. Until now, no report exists on whether this method is applicable to organelle genomes and to what extent it can be used. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: To address this problem, we adapted the CEL I-based heteroduplex cleavage strategy used in Targeting Induced Local Lesions in Genomes (TILLING for the discovery of nucleotide polymorphisms in organelle genomes. To assess the applicability and accuracy of this technology, designated ORG-EcoTILLING, at different taxonomic levels, we sampled two sets of taxa representing accessions from the Brassicaceae with three chloroplast genes (accD, matK and rbcL and one mitochondrial gene (atp6. The method successfully detected nine, six and one mutation sites in the accD, matK and rbcL genes, respectively, in 96 Brassica accessions. These mutations were confirmed by DNA sequencing, with 100% accuracy at both inter- and intraspecific levels. We also detected 44 putative mutations in accD in 91 accessions from 45 species and 29 genera of seven tribes. Compared with DNA sequencing results, the false negative rate was 36%. However, 17 SNPs detected in atp6 were completely identical to the sequencing results. CONCLUSIONS/SIGNIFICANCE: These results suggest that ORG-EcoTILLING is a powerful and cost-effective alternative method for high-throughput genome-wide assessment of inter- and intraspecific chloroplast and mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms. It will play an important role in

    On March 17, 2015, a geomagnetic storm—the largest of the solar cycle to date— hit Earth and gave many sky watchers around the world a beautiful auroral display. People made thousands of aurora-related tweets and direct reports to Aurorasaurus.org, an interdisciplinary citizen science project that tracks auroras worldwide in real-time through social media and the project's apps and website. Through Aurorasaurus, researchers are converting these crowdsourced observations into valuable data points to help improve models of where aurora can be seen. In this presentation, we will highlight how the team communicates with the public during these global, sporadic events to help drive and retain participation for Aurorasaurus. We will highlight some of the co-produced scientific results and increased media interest following this event. Aurorasaurus uses mobile apps, blogging, and a volunteer scientist network to reach out to aurora enthusiasts to engage in the project. Real-time tweets are voted on by other users to verify their accuracy and are pinned on a map located on aurorasaurus.org to help show the instantaneous, global auroral visibility. Since the project launched in October 2014, hundreds of users have documented the two largest geomagnetic storms of this solar cycle. In some cases, like for the St. Patrick's Day storm, users even reported seeing aurora in areas different than aurora models suggested. Online analytics indicate these events drive users to our page and many also share images with various interest groups on social media. While citizen scientists provide observations, Aurorasaurus gives back by providing tools to help the public see and understand the aurora. When people verify auroral sightings in a specific area, the project sends out alerts to nearby users of possible auroral visibility. Aurorasaurus team members around the world also help the public understand the intricacies of space weather and aurora science through blog articles

    A team of educators, scientists, and communication experts from multiple universities as well as a Science museum will report on the impact of ScienceToGo.org, which is an Out of Home Multi-Media (OHMM) exhibit targeting adults riding a major subway system. The campaign's goal is to design, implement, and study the efficacy of an OHMM model for free choice science learning about our changing climate. Subway riders represent a diverse and captive audience with most of them spending an average of one hour a day in the subway system. Through the use of specially designed OHMM such as train placards, platform posters, and virtual resources the campaign engages a potential audience of 500,000 riders/day with opportunities to learn climate change science informally. The primary goal of the ScienceToGo.org campaign is to engage, entertain, and educate the adult subway riding community in major U.S. city about climate change as a real, relevant, and solvable local challenge. A naturalistic quasi-experimental inquiry employing a mixed methodology approach best describes our research design with half of the subway system exposed to the project signage (experimental group) and the other half not being exposed to the project signage (control group). To identify possible outcomes, data was collected in the several forms: survey, analytic data associated with website, social media, web app, focus groups, and observations. This campaign is an example of how an individual's daily routine may be enhanced with an informal science learning opportunity. We see an urgent need to improve both the public's engagement with climate change science and to the profile of climate change science in formal education settings. The campaign makes deliberate use of humor and fun to engage a public and diverse audience with the serious issue of climate change. The research that will be presented will reveal some of the strengths and weaknesses of this strategy when communicating science to a diverse

    Full Text Available Las fracciones de materia orgánica del suelo (MOS lábiles y humificadas pueden ser afectadas por las prácticas de uso y manejo; sin embargo el impacto de estos cambios no se ha evaluado en suelos y ambientes tropicales. El presente estudio tuvo como objetivo evaluar los contenidos y algunas formas de carbono orgánico del suelo (COS en cinco zonas de clima cálido tropical (0 - 1110 m.s.n.m. del departamento del Magdalena (Colombia y el efecto que sobre ellas han tenido las prácticas asociadas a suelos cultivados con café (Coffea arabica, banano (Musa sp., palma africana (Elaeis guineensis y sábila (Aloe vera, comparados con suelos de bosques naturales. No se encontraron diferencias (P < 0.05 tanto entre zonas como entre usos del suelo, se presentaron valores medios a bajos de MOS en las zonas de estudio y contenidos de carbono total (Ct mayores en suelos de bosques que en suelos cultivados, así los suelos de bosques presentan una acumulación media de Ct de 42.4 mg/ha a 20 cm, frente a 33.8 mg/ha en los suelos cultivados, esto equivale a una pérdida media de Ct del 23% por efecto del manejo de los cultivos. En relación con el carbono extraíble con pirofosfato sódico altamente relacionado con las fracciones humificadas de la MOS (Cp se observaron valores muy bajos en los suelos cultivados y casi nulos en suelos de bosques; sin embargo estos últimos presentan mayor contenido de formas de carbono no-oxidables o estables (Cnox determinado por diferencia entre Ct - carbono oxidable (Cox. En el suelo cultivado con banano, el Ct corresponde en su totalidad a formas de Cox; mientras que en el suelo cultivado con palma africana las formas estables Cnox representaron 83% del carbono total.

    Full Text Available Entre las docenas de compuestos orgánicos aromáticos que conforman una parte de la contaminación en el ambiente de una ciudad, el naftaleno es un compuesto orgánico semi-volátil (COS presente en una buena concentración. El naftaleno o también llamado naftalina es un sólido blanco que se evapora fácilmente y se produce naturalmente cuando se queman combustibles, también cuando se quema tabaco o madera se produce naftalina. La exposición a grandes cantidades puede dañar o destruir una porción de los glóbulos rojos. Esto puede hacer que el número de glóbulos rojos disminuya hasta que su cuerpo remplace las células destruidas. Esta condición se llama anemia hemolítica. Se han descrito numeroso casos de anemia hemolítica en niños, incluso en recién nacidos, ya que la naftalina puede pasar de la sangre de una mujer embarazada a la sangre del feto. En este trabajo, se ha seleccionado el naftaleno como molécula modelo porque da un espectro Raman con picos bien definidos en un rango entre 500 y 3000 cm-1. La espectroscopia Raman de superficie promovida (SERS se usó para la detección de unos cuantos micro-gramos de naftaleno adsorbido sobre papel filtro modificado. La modificación consistió en aplicar un recubrimiento de nano-partículas de Ago sobre el papel usando dos métodos en los cuales se realiza una reacción química de reducción de un compuesto de plata. Al aplicar ésta técnica espectroscópica usando solo papel filtro se determina una cantidad mínima detectable por Raman convencional. Este valor cmd encontrado para el naftaleno, se toma como referencia para probar bajo la misma metodología, papel filtro con recubrimiento de nano-partículas de Ago. Bajo la técnica SERS la señal de los picos detectados fue mucho mayor, posibilitando la cuantificación de este contaminante atmosférico en cantidades menores al cmd encontrado

    How can an informal science learning project about climate change facilitate alliances among unlikely parties? We found a sweet spot of collaboration among private, public, and the non-profit sectors by borrowing strength and leveraging common interests. Using mass transit and out of home media, we created a diverse community around a learning campaign that starred an ostrich named "Ozzie." In 2013-14, ScienceToGo.org ran a series of 12 engaging posters and placards staring 'Ozzie the Ostrich' on the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority's Red and Orange subway lines targeting a daily audience of 400,000+ riders. The curriculum was divided into three phases: reality, relevance, and hope. Phase I established the reality of climate change (3 months). Phase II helped T-riders appreciate the relevancy of climate change to the local environment of Boston (4 months). Phase III engaged Bostonians with an array of hopeful examples of how people, companies, and organizations are effectively creating a more sustainable future (5 months). The focus of this presentation will be on the relationships that emerged from the work that went into Phase III. Engaging urban populations with climate change science is a difficult challenge since cities seem so removed from the 'natural environment.' However, mass transit provides an inherent means of communicating environmental messages with a cross section of the urban population. Our team felt that any messaging curriculum for an urban subway system must complement the scary reality of a changing climate with hopeful solutions that exist for dealing with it effectively. Urban areas such as Boston must develop adaptation and mitigation strategies that will help them not only survive, but thrive in a changing environment. Making our audience aware of the amazing efforts in this area was the goal of Phase III. There were three parts to our efforts: the signage on the subway, above ground ostriches, and social events.

    At the NW of the Iberian Variscan Massif the Parautochthon is envisaged as an intervening structural unit located between the far-traveled allochthonous stacked units and the autochthon. It has been recently divided in two structural slices; the Upper constitutes a repetition of the upper Cambrian to Silurian sequence of the Central Iberian Zone autochthon, while the Lower has been proposed as a thick Variscan synorogenic deposit. A large volcanic block embedded in the uppermost Devonian-lower Carboniferous Lower Parautochthon yields an U/Pb age of 497 ± 2 Ma (upper Cambrian). This age, joined to the petrographic features and the chemical composition, supports the provenance area for the large glided block in the Upper Parautochthon, where a magmatic event of similar age and characteristics has been identified. This source area for the slid block reinforces the idea of a mélange developed in the synorogenic trough at the front of a main thrust structure, which over thrusts the Upper Parautochthon on top of the Lower Parautochthon.

    Schmidt, C.

    2014-12-01

    A significant number of U.S. citizens have real concerns that actions to curb climate change threaten prosperity and basic freedoms and present an affront to their own values. Others are so worried that climate change will destroy Earth's environment and any prospects for their descendants that they are either frantic to find solutions, or too discouraged to act. To attempt to reach these disparate audiences with critical scientific information from reports such as the IPCC and NCA, the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research and the United Nations Foundation initiated the Scientist Citizen Initiative, and launched Climate Voices - Science Speakers Network (climatevoices.org) in April of this year. This presentation will address the trials and errors of establishing such a network, engaging scientists across the country, and creating public demand for such a resource. The major focus will be lessons still being learned about reaching diverse local audiences; gauging and implementing the varied approach necessary to engage such audiences; and enabling scientists to initiate public conversations involving fellow citizens in discussion of climate change observations, impacts, and solutions. How can partners be identified and involved that deliver mixed audiences ranging from the Six Americas' "alarmed and concerned" to the "doubtful and dismissive?" [Yale Project on Climate Communication] How can synthesis report results be made compelling and relevant to such audiences? How can such an effort be implemented across the entire country? How can its accomplishments and failures be assessed and evaluated? This presentation will provide answers in progress to these questions.

Compararam-se o sistema orgânico (SO e o convencional (SC de tomates da variedade Débora e Santa Clara, por meio de um estudo interdisciplinar. O experimento foi conduzido em blocos casualizados com seis repetições, com parcelas medindo 25 ´ 17 m, em um Argissolo Vermelho-Amarelo distrófico. Todas as práticas culturais foram realizadas de acordo com as técnicas utilizadas pelos agricultores convencionais ou orgânicos da região. No SO a fertilização foi realizada aplicando, em cada cova, composto orgânico, superfosfato simples e calcário dolomítico (5 L, 60 g e 60 g e pulverizando biofertilizante duas vezes por semana. No SC, foi utilizado 200 g 4-14-8 (NPK por cova e, após o plantio, 30 g N, 33 g K and 10,5 g P por cova; a partir de 52 dias após o plantio, as plantas foram pulverizadas com adubo foliar uma vez por semana. No SC, para o controle dos problemas fitossanitários, foram realizadas aplicações de mistura de inseticidas, fungicidas e acaricidas duas vezes por semana. Para o SO o controle foi realizado pulverizando-se extratos de pimenta-do-reino, de alho e de eucalipto; calda bordaleza e biofertilizante duas vezes por semana. O vira-cabeça foi a principal doença do SO, resultando em menor desenvolvimento de plantas, número de inflorescência e produção. No SC, a doença foi mantida sob controle, sendo que a população de tripes, vetor do vírus, ocorreu em níveis inferiores que no SO. A variedade Santa Clara apresentou maior incidência da virose e, por esse motivo, teve desempenho inferior à Débora, especialmente no SO. A ocorrência de Liriomysa spp. foi significativamente menor no SO, possivelmente devido à maior freqüência de Chrysoperla. O SC apresentou menor incid

    Full Text Available Weed control has always been an important issue in agriculture. With the advent of no-till systems, soil erosion was reduced but herbicide use was increased. Organic no-till systems try to adjust reduced erosion to the no use of herbicides. Nevertheless, this adjustment is limited by the cost of mechanical weed control. This cost may be reduced by improved cultural weed control with cover crops mulches. In this paper we report a study on the application of compost manure on an oats winter cover crop, preceding soybean, instead of on the soybean summer crop. Treatments comprised a control without compost manure, and compost manure doses of 4 and 8 Mg ha-1 applied either on oats in winter or soybean in summer, organized in a randomized block design, with five replications. In summer, plots were split into weed-controlled or not controlled subplots. The timing of application and the manure doses did not affect the oats biomass or the soybean performance. However, in summer, without water stress, the application of manure at 8 Mg ha-1 directly on soybean has reduced weed biomass in this crop.O controle de plantas daninhas sempre foi um fator importante na agricultura. Com o advento do plantio direto reduziu-se a erosão do solo, mas houve aumento no uso de herbicidas. O plantio direto orgânico busca conciliar o controle da erosão com a eliminação do uso de herbicidas, porém o custo de produção é onerado pela necessidade de controle mecânico das plantas daninhas. Esse custo poderia ser reduzido por um melhor controle cultural com palhas produzidas por plantas de cobertura no inverno. Neste trabalho, antecipou-se a adubação da soja para a aveia, aplicando na aveia o adubo que seria aplicado na soja, de modo a aumentar a quantidade de palha de aveia sobre a qual a soja seria semeada no verão seguinte. O delineamento experimental foi em blocos ao acaso com parcelas subdivididas. Os tratamentos foram uma testemunha sem adubação e duas doses

    Full Text Available Discutiram-se os critérios de avaliação de materiais orgânicos empregados como fertilizantes adotados na legislação brasileira atual. Trabalhando com amostras de compostos, estéreos, resíduos industriais e turfa, discutiu-se a determinação de carbono orgânico através de oxidação pelo íon dicromato. Sugeriu-se que o atual método de determinação de matéria orgânica total por combustão tenha sua utilização restrita ou desaconselhada, devido aos erros grosseiros que proporciona. Como forma de se avaliar a qualidade de materiais orgânicos, discutiu-se a determinação da capacidade de retenção de cátions (CTC em fertilizantes e materiais orgânicos em geral. O grau de maturação ou estabilidade de compostos orgânicos pôde ser convenientemente expresso através da relação entre CTC (meq/l00g e o teor de carbono orgânico expresso em porcentagem.The present paper aimed to study the determination of organic carbon and the cation exchange capacity (CEC of organic materials which can be used as fertilizers. Analytical procedures recommended by Brazilian official methods of fertilizer analysis include the determination of total organic matter by incineration. The errors of this method are not taken into account in spite of the great variability of the organic materials. This paper suggests that the organic characteristics of organic fertilizers must be expressed by the organic carbon content as determined by wet oxidation with dichromate ion and sulfuric acid. There is a great demand for practical indexes for determining the state of composting since the incorporation into the soil of immature organic material can cause severe damage to crops. In order to evaluate the maturity of organic products as manures, compost industrial wastes and peat, the determination of CEC was discussed. It seems possible to define the chemical stabilization of organic materials on the basis of the relationship between CEC and organic carbon

    The Ontological Discovery Environment ( http://ontologicaldiscovery.org ) is a free, public Internet resource for the storage, sharing, retrieval and analysis of phenotype-centered genomic data sets. The intent of this resource is to allow the creation of user-defined phenotype categories based on naturally and experimentally observed biological networks, pathways and systems rather than on externally manifested constructs and semantics such as disease names and processes. By extracting the relationships of complex processes from the technology that produces those relationships, this resource meets a growing demand for data integration and hypothesis discovery across multiple experimental contexts, including broad species and phenotype domains. At a highly processed level, analyses of set similarity, distance and hierarchical relations are performed through a modular suite of tools. The core pivot point of analysis is the creation of a bipartite network of gene-phenotype relations, a unique discrete graph approach to gene-set analysis which enables set-set matching of non-referential data. The central organizing metaphor of a gene set may be created, stored and curated by individual users, shared among virtual working groups, or made publicly available. Gene sets submission incorporates a variety of accession numbers, microarray feature IDs, and gene symbols from model organisms, allowing integration across experimental platforms, literature reviews and other genomic analyses. The sets themselves are annotated with several levels of metadata which may include an unstructured description, publication information and structured community ontologies for anatomy, process and function. Gene set translation to user chosen reference species through gene homology allows translational comparison of models regardless of the face validity of the experimental systems. In addition, computationally derived gene sets can be integrated into phenome interdependency and similarity

    Full Text Available El aparente conflicto normativo que se presenta entre las normas presupuestales y financieras, descritas en la Ley 30 de 1992 y la disposición contenida en el artículo 4º del Decreto 111 de 1996, Estatuto Orgánico de Presupuesto, debe estudiarse desde la perspectiva de la hermenéutica jurídica, así como desde la autonomía universitaria conferida por mandato constitucional. A partir de las reglas fundamentales para resolver las antinomias jurídicas, el ordenamiento colombiano establece unas reglas generales sobre aplicación normativa contenidas en las Leyes 57 y 153 de 1887. Sin embargo, la determinación concreta de la prevalencia de una norma sobre otra, o mejor, la búsqueda de una interpretación correctiva, requiere de un mayor estudio casuístico. Para el caso de estudio, la autonomía universitaria contemplada en el artículo 69 de la Constitución Nacional requirió que el legislador expidiera la Ley 30 de 1992, que en sus artículos 28 y 57, desarrolló los aspectos en que se refleja la dicha autonomía. El régimen financiero contenido en el capítulo V de la Ley 30 de 1992, es parte esencial del régimen especial de las universidades estatales, pues el legislador consideró que la autonomía universitaria en su dimensión presupuestal, solo se puede garantizar si su presupuesto se mantiene protegido de la libre facultad potestativa del poder ejecutivo.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar os efeitos dos sistemas de manejo integrado e orgânico sobre atributos de nutrição, sanidade, rendimento e qualidade de maçãs 'Catarina'. O estudo foi realizado em São Joaquim-SC, ao longo das safras de 2008/2009 e 2009/2010. O porta-enxerto era Marubakaido, com filtro de EM-9, e as macieiras conduzidas, em líder central. Os atributos do solo eram adequados ao desenvolvimento e produção das macieiras em ambos os sistemas. O sistema de manejo orgânico aumentou o teor de Cu nas folhas e Ca e Cu na casca e polpa dos frutos, a área de cor vermelha na epiderme dos frutos e a incidência de frutos com queimaduras por sol e com danos por mosca-das-frutas. O índice iodo-amido e o teor de sólidos solúveis foram superiores nos frutos do sistema orgânico. O manejo orgânico reduziu a área foliar média das plantas, e nos frutos reduziu as relações K/Ca, Mg/Ca, N/Ca e (K+Mg/Ca na casca e Mg/Ca na polpa, a severidade de "russeting", o número de sementes e a acidez titulável. Não houve diferenças quanto aos demais atributos avaliados. A produção orgânica de maçãs é viável, desde que disponível tecnologia eficaz para o controle da mosca-das-frutas.

La source de chaleur est une flamme plate d'un prémélange stoechiométrique de gaz naturel et d'air stabilisé sur une grille d'une surface de 100 cm2. Plusieurs grilles en acier inoxydable sont comparées. Elles diffèrent par leur épaisseur, le nombre et la dimension des trous. Un échangeur de chaleur en laiton à circulation d'eau peut être approché jusqu'à 7 mm de la surface du brûleur. La température des gaz frais, le débit et la position de l'échangeur ont été modifiés et les conditions optimales de fonctionnement sont décrites. Les températures à travers les gaz frais, la flamme, les gaz brûlés et les fumées, ont été mesurées. Un modèle simple des échanges de chaleurs est présenté. Il permet une meilleure compréhension des processus de transfert et facilite le choix des conditions opératoires. Dans les meilleures conditions, 93 % du contenu thermique du mélange gazeux est transféré à l'échangeur. Some general characteristics of a compact and efficient gas burner are described (1-5 kW. The heat source is a premixed flat flame stabilized on a 100 cm2 grid fed by a stoechiometric mixture of air and natural gas. Various types of stainless steel grids have been investigated. They differ according to their thickness and to the number and size of the holes. A circulating water heat exchanger made of brass can be approached to the flame as close as 7 mm above the burner surface. The temperature of the inlet gas mixture, the flow rate, and the position of the heat exchanger have been varied. The best working conditions are given as well as the temperature through the fresh gaseous mixture, the temperature profiles of the flame and the temperature of the fumes. From heat transfer calculations a simple model is presented. It gives better insight into the heat transfer processes and facilitates a judicious

  9. Lithological units at the boundary zone between the Jining and Huai'an Complexes (central-northern margin of the North China Craton): A Paleoproterozoic tectonic mélange?

    In the central-northern margin of the North China Craton, the tectonic boundary between the Jining and Huai'an Complexes is well exposed in the Gushan area. In this boundary zone, exotic blocks of orthopyroxene-bearing monzonitic gneiss, garnet-bearing mafic granulite, marble, and calc-silicate were identified in the meta-psammitic and meta-pelitic matrix. The likely nature of the rock units is a tectonic mélange, which is a key to understand the tectonic evolution of the craton. In this paper, geochronological and geochemical studies have been carried out on representative lithologies from the Gushan area to discuss their petrogenesis and geodynamic settings. The opx-bearing monzonitic gneisses (U-Pb zircon emplacement age of 2.17 Ga) are high-K calc-alkaline to shoshonitic I-type rocks with trace-element magmatic arc signature. The trace elements, whole rock Sm-Nd and zircon Lu-Hf isotopes suggest that they were possibly derived from partial melting of Neoarchean lower crust (garnet amphibolite) in a continental arc. The protoliths of the garnet-bearing mafic granulites are inferred to have formed between 2.37 Ga and 1.95 Ga, possibly at 2.2 Ga. They show N-MORB geochemical affinity and were most likely produced by partial melting of spinel lherzolite in a mid-ocean ridge setting. Detrital zircons from one metapsammite sample (garnet-bearing quartzofeldspathic gneiss) yield nearly concordant 207Pb/206Pb ages ranging from 2.1 Ga to 2.0 Ga. In situ U-Pb and Hf isotopic data of zircons from the metapsammite sample support that the metasedimentary protoliths were probably derived from a mid-Paleoproterozoic continental arc. Three metamorphic age groups (1.95-1.93 Ga, 1.86-1.83 Ga, and 1.80 Ga) are revealed by the opx-bearing monzonitic gneisses, garnet-bearing mafic granulites, garnet-bearing quartzofeldspathic gneiss, and sillimanite-garnet-K-feldspar gneiss. The predominant group (1.95-1.93 Ga) is considered to record the age of near-peak granulite facies

La cuantificación en plasma de los niveles de pesticidas organoclorados (POCs, bifenilos policlorados (PCBs e hidrocarburos aromáticos policíclicos (PAHs se realizó mediante GC-MS. Todas las muestras analizadas presentaron niveles cuantificables de alguno de los COPs incluidos en el estudio. El grupo de COPs que presentó mayores niveles fue el de los PAHs (alcanzando la carga total de PAHs 6,45 ng/ml, siendo el fenantreno el hidrocarburo más frecuentemente detectado y a concentraciones más altas, lo que indica el origen petrogénico de estos contaminantes. La contaminación por PCBs alcanzó niveles menores (3,84 ng/ml, predominando el grupo de los hexaclorobifenilos (PCB-153 y PCB- 138 principalmente. Los niveles de contaminación por POCs fueron también bajos alcanzando valores de 1,67 ng/ml, siendo el principal metabolito del DDT, el p,p´-DDE el compuesto más frecuentemente detectado (89,6% y a más altas concentraciones (0,68 ng/ml. Fue evidente una asociación inversa entre el tamaño de las tortugas y la carga de PCBs y PAHs. Asimismo existieron niveles más altos de contaminación por COPs en los años 2009 y 2010. Este trabajo evalúa por vez primera la presencia de PAHs en sangre de tortugas varadas y nuestros resultados parecen indicar que esta metodología y esta especie animal pueden ser muy útiles para monitorizar la presencia de contaminación por derivados del petróleo en el medio acuático.

  9. Synthesis and organ distribution of [18F]Fluoro-Org 6141 in the rat: A potential glucocorticoid receptor ligand for positron emission tomography

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    For the synthesis of [18F]Fluoro-Org 6141 via a nucleophilic substitution reaction with 18F-, the tosyl group was chosen as the leaving group because of its stability and excellent leaving group ability. The biodistribution of the high affinity and moderate lipophilicity (log P 2.66, calculated value) ligand [18F]Fluoro-Org 6141 (specific activity 8.2 to 37 TBq/mmol, yield 10% at EOB) was examined in sham adrenalectomized (sADX) and adrenalectomized (ADX) male Wistar rats. Two days after ADX or sADX, the animals were anesthetized and 0.37 to 1.85 MBq of [18F]Fluoro-Org 6141 was administered intravenously. Kinetics of 18F activity uptake were monitored for 3 h using a stationary double-headed positron emission tomography (PET) camera, and the biodistribution was assessed by ex vivo determination of radioactivity in several tissues and different brain areas. One hour after injection of the radioligand, the bladder, kidney, liver, trachea, and bone of sADX animals contained more concentration on a wet weight basis than blood. Three hours post injection, radioactivity was retained in bladder, trachea, and bone. The accumulation of radioactivity in brain corresponded to the concentration of activity in the blood within the first hours after injection. ADX animals showed a higher uptake of 18F activity in spleen, testes, and brain areas (hippocampus and brainstem) but a lower uptake in bone than sADX rats. PET scans suggested that 18F activity uptake in the brain had not yet reached a maximum at this interval. Although [18F]Fluoro-Org 6141 is not useful for PET studies of glucocorticoid receptors (GRs), the results obtained with this compound indicate a synthetic strategy suitable for the synthesis of high-affinity radioligands for GRs

    Full Text Available A produção de alimentos orgânicos proporciona a oferta de produtos saudáveis; o uso sustentável da água e do solo; a integridade cultural das comunidades rurais; a sustentabilidade econômica e ecológica; e a eliminação do uso de organismos geneticamente modificados em qualquer fase do processo de produção, processamento, armazenamento, distribuição e comercialização. Considerando a importância ecológica da região Amazônica, foi avaliado o mercado de consumo de produtos alimentícios orgânicos em Manaus-Amazonas e caracterizado seu perfil de consumo, potencialidade e limitações. A pesquisa foi realizada junto a Associação de Produtores Orgânicos do Amazonas. Os resultados indicaram os consumidores são em sua maioria do sexo feminino, com faixa etária entre 30 a 40 anos, nível de escolaridade superior completo, em sua maioria, com uma renda superior a 4 salários mínimos. São clientes e consumidores fiéis, porém não avaliam com critério o alimento que estão adquirindo. Os produtores encontram dificuldades principalmente no apoio do poder público à produção e comercialização, com isso a oferta não é ampla e variada, havendo a competição com os preços dos produtos gerados sem a qualidade de orgânico.

    Full Text Available The purpose of this article is to show a more accurate orifice equation for a two-phase flow, such a compressible mixture of gas and liquid. The orifice equation given here con be used for the measurement of a gas-liquid mixture of fine emulsions by the orificemeter method. From the thermodynamic point of view, an equation of state has been formulated which provides the relationship between the specific mass of the mixture and pressure, under conditions of adiabatic expansion. The results obtained enable the mass flow rates of gas and liquid ta be determined without separation of the phases, provided thot the gas liquid mass ratio is known. The critical pressure ratio corresponding ta sonic velocity is also determined. Cet article présente une relation plus précise pour l'écoulement d'un système à deux phases, tel qu'un mélange compressible gaz-liquide, à travers un diaphragme. Cette relation peut être utilisée pour des mesures de mélanges gaz-liquide très finement divisés, c'est-à-dire des émulsions ou brouillards, par la méthode du diaphragme en paroi mince. Du point de vue thermodynamique, on a formulé une équation d'état donnant la relation entre la masse spécifique du mélange et la pression dans des conditions d'expansion adiabatique. Les résultats obtenus per-mettent de déterminer le débit massique du gaz et du liquide, sans séparation des deux phases, à condition que le rapport de masse gaz-liquide soit connu. On détermine également le rapport de pression critique correspondantà la vitesse du son.

    Full Text Available O crescimento do mercado de alimentos livres de agrotóxicos vem gerando interesse de agricultores em sistemas orgânicos de produção. Os adeptos deste sistema promovem mudanças substanciais de seus métodos de produção, adquirindo conhecimentos técnicos e empíricos associados. São necessários, portanto, estudos para avaliar o sistema orgânico neste contexto, comparando-o com o modo de produção convencional, no que diz respeito aos aspectos socioeconômicos e ambientais. Este estudo teve como objetivo o diagnóstico regional desses aspectos em sistemas orgânicos e convencionais do distrito de Sussuanha, município de Guaraciaba do Norte, e do município de São Benedito, no estado do Ceará. Foram entrevistados sete agricultores orgânicos e 21 agricultores convencionais, caracterizando o meio social e as mudanças de qualidade de vida ocorridas com o tempo. As interações agricultor-meio ambiente, no sistema de produção orgânico, geraram melhoria da qualidade de vida das famílias. No sistema convencional, caracterizado pelo uso intensivo de agrotóxicos e grande dependência de adubos químicos, constatou-se que prevalece o interesse em obter a máxima produção sem preocupação com o ambiente. Esta condição se reflete no contato contínuo com agrotóxicos, além das margens de lucros restritivas, o que pode comprometer o uso do solo pelas futuras gerações, pois há uma inerente redução da fertilidade natural dos solos cultivados sob este sistema.

    Full Text Available Du graphe (P, V de la compression d'un mélange gaz-liquide, on peut tirer la valeur du taux volumique de gaz dans le mélange. La vérification théorique et expérimentale de ce principe ainsi que ses limites d'application comme moyen de mesure sont présentées. Ce résultat a été utilisé pour développer un système de mesure de l'aération de l'huile moteur, le SMAC (Système de Mesure d'Aération par Compressibilité. Des exemples d'application, tels que l'étude de la sensibilité de certaines huiles à l'aération, sont exposés. Oil aeration can be a real problem in engine oil circuit. The involved lubrication power decrease and thermic properties changes can damage the engine. Furthermore, the increased compressibility is very dangerous for hydraulic systems like valve lash adjusters. A first step to control this aeration is to be able to measure it. Gammametry is often used but this measurement needs a very precise calibration and is quite complicated and dangerous. A new absolute measurement has been discovered, based on the difference of compressibility between air and oil. It is absolute because the measurement principle is independant of the conditions, The system does not need a new calibration at each new environment. It is valid for any gas-liquid mixture. From the (P, V graph of a gas-liquid mixture compression, one can derive the gas-liquid volumetric ratio. The log-log graph (P/PO, 1-V/VO of a mixture sample pressurization always shows an inflexion point. The y value of this inflexion point (1-V/VO is equal to the volumetric gas ratio of the sample (before compression. This phenomenon is obvious on hydraulic curves (see Annexe 1. To check it, we have proceeded to a theoretical demonstration and an experimental verification. The theoretical demonstration of this principle concludes that the principle is verified as long as the ration P index 0 / alpha B is small. B is the oil bulk modulus, alpha is the volumetric gas ratio

    Full Text Available With the rise of China's status on international stage as a result of its economic development there is an increasingly audible voice of Chinese cultural nationalism. More and more educators and intellectuals are calling for the revival of Chinese traditional culture values. However, the very issues of who are the Chinese and what are traditional Chinese cultural values present a huge dilemma. The debates on a recent a TV program "General Shi Lang" consist a good case to illustrate this dilemma. Shi Lang was a general of the last days of the Ming Dynasty, but had surrendered to the Manchu Qing dynasty invaders and fought for the Machus take over Taiwan from a Chinese ruler. The debates show that the dilemma has its cause in at least three issues. First, it is not at all obvious who should be categorized as Chinese. Secondly, it is not at all obvious what Chinese cultural values are. And finally it is the issue of evaluation of traditional values against the universal claim of the values of liberal democracy.

As plantas adubadas com esterco de galinhas apresentaram massas de matéria fresca e seca superiores às das plantas não adubadas. A cobertura morta com capim tifton proporcionou aumento da massa de matéria seca das plantas de alface, o que pode estar relacionado com a menor temperatura dos canteiros que receberam esse material como cobertura. Commelina benghalensis foi a planta infestante mais importante no cultivo orgânico de alface. A aplicação de adubos orgânicos e a cobertura morta com capins não foram capazes de suprimir plantas daninhas e manter a umidade do solo, em áreas de cultivo de alface.

    The most dominant hypotheses for the pathogenesis of schizophrenia have focused primarily upon hyperfunctional dopaminergic and hypofunctional glutamatergic neurotransmission in the central nervous system. The therapeutic efficacy of all atypical antipsychotics is explained in part by antagonism of the dopaminergic neurotransmission, mainly by blockade of D(2) dopamine receptors. N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor hypofunction in schizophrenia can be reversed by glycine transporter type-1 (GlyT-1) inhibitors, which regulate glycine concentrations at the vicinity of NMDA receptors. Combined drug administration with D(2) dopamine receptor blockade and activation of hypofunctional NMDA receptors may be needed for a more effective treatment of positive and negative symptoms and the accompanied cognitive deficit in schizophrenia. To investigate this type of combined drug administration, rats were treated with the atypical antipsychotic risperidone together with the GlyT-1 inhibitor Org-24461. Brain microdialysis was applied in the striatum of conscious rats and determinations of extracellular dopamine, DOPAC, HVA, glycine, glutamate, and serine concentrations were carried out using HPLC/electrochemistry. Risperidone increased extracellular concentrations of dopamine but failed to influence those of glycine or glutamate measured in microdialysis samples. Org-24461 injection reduced extracellular dopamine concentrations and elevated extracellular glycine levels but the concentrations of serine and glutamate were not changed. When risperidone and Org-24461 were added in combination, a decrease in extracellular dopamine concentrations was accompanied with sustained elevation of extracellular glycine levels. Interestingly, the extracellular concentrations of glutamate were also enhanced. Our data indicate that coadministration of an antipsychotic with a GlyT-1 inhibitor may normalize hypofunctional NMDA receptor-mediated glutamatergic neurotransmission with reduced

Os experimentos foram conduzidos em três locais, em delineamento de blocos casualizados com trinta genótipos e três repetições. Uma análise se baseou na produtividade média anual de quatro colheitas (2005/2006, 2006/2007, 2007/2008 e 2008/2009 com o total de doze ambientes. A outra análise considerou a média de dois biênios (2005/2006 e 2006/2007; 2007/2008 e 2008/2009 com o total de seis ambientes. A análise em que se considerou a média da produtividade do biênio apresentou redução expressiva do coeficiente de variação ambiental. Por isso, foi possível identificar mais cultivares com adaptabilidade e estabilidade para o cultivo orgânico. Conclui-se que a análise de adaptabilidade e estabilidade com base na produtividade de biênio é mais segura para a seleção de cultivares. Considerando essa premissa, as cultivares 'Catucaí Vermelho 36/6', 'Catuaí Vermelho IAC 15' e 'Siriema 842' são indicadas somente para os ambientes favoráveis. As cultivares 'Sabiá 708', 'IBC Palma 1', 'Catucaí Amarelo 24/137', 'Oeiras MG 6851' e as linhagens H518 e H514 são indicadas para o cultivo orgânico em locais com ambientes similares aos avaliados em Minas Gerais.

    Modern laminated photosynthetic microbial mats are ideal environments to study how microbial activity creates and modifies carbon and sulfur isotopic signatures prior to lithification. Laminated microbial mats from a hypersaline lagoon (Guerrero Negro, Baja California, Mexico) maintained in a flume in a greenhouse at NASA Ames Research Center were sampled for δ(13) C of organic material and carbonate to assess the impact of carbon fixation (e.g., photosynthesis) and decomposition (e.g., bacterial respiration) on δ(13) C signatures. In the photic zone, the δ(13) C org signature records a complex relationship between the activities of cyanobacteria under variable conditions of CO2 limitation with a significant contribution from green sulfur bacteria using the reductive TCA cycle for carbon fixation. Carbonate is present in some layers of the mat, associated with high concentrations of bacteriochlorophyll e (characteristic of green sulfur bacteria) and exhibits δ(13) C signatures similar to DIC in the overlying water column (-2.0‰), with small but variable decreases consistent with localized heterotrophic activity from sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB). Model results indicate respiration rates in the upper 12 mm of the mat alter in situ pH and HCO3- concentrations to create both phototrophic CO2 limitation and carbonate supersaturation, leading to local precipitation of carbonate minerals. The measured activity of SRB with depth suggests they variably contribute to decomposition in the mat dependent on organic substrate concentrations. Millimeter-scale variability in the δ(13) C org signature beneath the photic zone in the mat is a result of shifting dominance between cyanobacteria and green sulfur bacteria with the aggregate signature overprinted by heterotrophic reworking by SRB and methanogens. These observations highlight the impact of sedimentary microbial processes on δ(13) C org signatures; these processes need to be considered when attempting to relate

    Full Text Available Soil taxonomy systems distinguish mineral soils from organic soils based on the amount of soil organic carbon. Procedures adopted in soil surveys for organic carbon measurement are therefore of major importance to classify the soils, and to correlate their properties with data from other studies. To evaluate different methods for measuring organic carbon and organic matter content in Histosols and soils with histic horizons, from different regions of Brazil, 53 soil samples were comparatively analyzed by the methods of Walkley & Black (modified, Embrapa, Yeomans & Bremner, modified Yeomans & Bremner, muffle furnace, and CHN. The modified Walkley & Black (C-W & B md and the combustion of organic matter in the muffle furnace (OM-Muffle were the most suitable for the samples with high organic carbon content. Based on regression analysis data, the OM-muffle may be estimated from C-W & B md by applying a factor that ranges from 2.00 to 2.19 with 95% of probability. The factor 2.10, the average value, is suggested to convert results obtained by these methods.Sistemas taxonômicos distinguem horizontes e/ou camadas minerais das orgânicas baseando-se na quantidade de carbono orgânico.

Foram utilizadas duas fontes orgânicas, caracterizadas como material não humificado (esterco e humificado (ácido húmico extraído de turfa. Porções de solo foram incubadas com doses de 0; 7,5; 15,0; 22,5; e 30,0 g kg-1 dos adubos orgânicos. Foram analisados argila dispersa em água, condutividade elétrica, pH em água e em KCl, bem como determinados o ponto de efeito salino nulo (PESN e o potencial elétrico superficial (Ψo. Observou-se comportamento distinto entre os tratamentos com esterco e com ácidos húmicos em relação à dispersão de argilas. A adição de esterco provocou aumento da dispersão, o que pode estar relacionado com o aumento da condutividade elétrica pela presença de sais. Por outo lado, a adição de ácido húmico promoveu a floculação das argilas, em decorrência, provavelmente, da formação de complexos argilo-húmicos. O PESN decresceu linearmente com a adição dos adubos orgânicos, principalmente nos tratamentos com ácido húmico. A floculação não esteve obrigatoriamente associada a uma condição de baixo módulo de Ψo. Nos tratamentos com doses mais elevadas de ácido húmico, foi observada carga negativa, apesar de não se observar dispersão de argila, provavelmente pelo fato de os ácidos húmicos apresentarem propriedades eletroquímicas distintas da matriz mineral, em função da sua condição de polieletrólito e da possibilidade de alteração na configuração da macromolécula.

    2002-06-01

    Full Text Available Este trabalho teve como objetivo estudar a natureza química das frações leves-livres (FLL e leves intra-agregado (FLI da matéria orgânica do solo, obtidas pelo fracionamento físico do solo por densidade, por meio da espectroscopia na região do infravermelho, para verificar se tais frações constituem compartimentos distintos da matéria orgânica do solo. Foram analisadas amostras de Latossolos de dois estados do Brasil (RS e GO, submetidos a plantio direto e preparo convencional, em distintos sistemas de rotação de culturas. A análise por infravermelho revelou diferenças contrastantes entre os compartimentos orgânicos estudados. Os espectros de IV da fração leve-livre apresentaram configuração semelhante aos dos resíduos vegetais, indicando que ela se encontra em estádios iniciais de transformação. Não foram observadas diferenças estruturais na FLL entre os distintos sistemas de preparo e rotação de culturas. Os espectros de IV da FLI apresentaram bandas de absorção N-H e C-O de polissacarídeos menos intensas e em maior conjugação, em relação aos espectros da FLL, características de material mais humificado. Foi observada ainda uma maior transformação estrutural da fração leve intra-agregado em solos sob preparo convencional, quando comparada à FLI de solo sob vegetação natural e plantio direto. Os índices de hidrofobicidade (IH e de condensação (IC, determinados a partir de relações entre as bandas de absorção de grupamentos - CH3 alifáticos, C-O de polissacarídeos e C=O conjugados, permitiram identificar as diferenças na recalcitrância e condensação das frações leves. Constatou-se que ambos os índices foram significativamente maiores para a matéria orgânica intra-agregado, por conseqüência de seu maior grau de humificação.

    2005-04-01

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar a utilização da microfiltração para obtenção de suco de maracujá orgânico clarificado e sua aceitabilidade sensorial. O maracujá foi cultivado sob sistema orgânico, em pomares localizados no Estado do Rio de Janeiro. O suco foi submetido a um tratamento enzimático antes da microfiltração, realizada em membranas tubulares com tamanho de poro médio de 0,3 mm e área de filtração de 0,05 m², com o fim de diminuir a viscosidade do suco e, conseqüentemente, melhorar a eficiência do processo. O processo promoveu a completa remoção dos sólidos em suspensão no suco permeado, o que resultou em um suco límpido e clarificado. O refresco de maracujá, obtido a partir do suco de maracujá orgânico microfiltrado, obteve boa aceitabilidade sensorial, tendo sido aprovado por 75% dos consumidores. Foi possível conservar o suco armazenado em embalagens de plástico durante 28 dias, sob refrigeração a 7ºC. Este estudo confirma a eficiência da microfiltração como método alternativo de conservação de suco de maracujá e evidencia a importância dessa técnica no processamento de sucos orgânicos.The objective of this work was to evaluate the use of microfiltration to obtain clarified organic passion fruit juice and analyse its sensory acceptability. Passion fruit was cultivated under organic system in Rio de Janeiro State. The juice was submitted to an enzymatic treatment before microfiltration, in order to decrease its viscosity and pulp content, and to improve permeate flux. Microfiltration had been accomplished with a tubular 0.3 µm pore size membrane with 0.05 m² of filtration area. The process promoted complete removal of the suspended pulp in permeated juice, which resulted in a limpid and clarified juice. Concerning the sensorial analysis, passion fruit refreshment obtained from clarified juice was approved by 75% of the consumers. The microfiltered passion fruit juice was conserved in
